Find out what happened last year at Watergate Bay…

Bring on the waves and the action. The UK’s top surfers will gather at Watergate Bay on the Bank Holiday weekend from Saturday 30 April to Monday 2 May to compete for national titles. If you’re not a competitor, it’ll be a great weekend to ‘take a beach day’ and watch the action from some of the countries top surfers, many local to Cornwall.

Hosted by Extreme Academy at Watergate Bay, the longest-running surfing contest in the country, the 44th English National Surfing Championships will crown winners in 16 categories, ranging from Under 12s to Veterans (45+), in shortboard and longboard disciplines.

The event will also act as the selection competition for the English Junior Surf Team, with winning surfers going on to represent the country at the European Junior Championships, taking place in Morocco in December 2016.

Conditions dependant, we would expect to see heats taking place between 10am and 4pm over the three days with The Beach Hut’s newly covered deck providing the perfect viewing platform to soak up the action, open between 8:30am and 9pm each day.

The event is free to attend. For more information visit: www.facebook.com/englishnationalsurfingchampionships
