Skateboarding is the son of surfing and since the Dog Town era, skating and surfing have always gone hand in hand. Skateboarding has introduced a whole new generation of concrete surfers to the fun and excitement of concrete waves. Naturally, the skate competition held at Fistral Beach has been a very popular event and a serious crowd pleaser. The skateboarders absolutely shred the mini ramp and have been pushing their airs, grabs and grinds faster, longer and higher every year.
Whether you’re a skate newbie, a budding skate grom, an old school ripper or just a bonafide skate fan, the Fistral Beach skate competition is the place for you.
Applications are now full for the PRO comps but AM/OPEN comps are free to turn up on the days.

This year the leading brand in plant nutrients CANNA, will be bringing a brand new Midi Ramp to Boardmasters.
The CANNA Midi Ramp will send our skaters and bmx’ers as high as possible. The ramp offers 48ft of transition with a 5ft section, a 5.5ft section, a wicked gap and new 8ft section that will be throwing our home grown talent straight up into the air performing all kinds of trickery madness.
