"Surfing is like the mafia. Once you're in, you're in. There's no getting out" - Kelly Slater
Since 1981 Boardmasters has been the biggest international professional surf contest and festival in the UK. Over the last 35 years we have attracted the biggest names in world surfing as well as some of the biggest music acts. So to ensure you make the best of the summer, all you have to do is ditch your shoes, wander onto the golden Cornish sand, sit back and enjoy the surfing and the music.
And it’s not all about the surf comps…
300 miles of the spectacular Cornish coastline offers amazing beaches and great surf. This means you can also get in the water during the Boardmasters and experience surfing for yourself. Don’t just visit the beach….. Live it!
