Boardmasters endeavours to bring the best of music and surfing together in one unique festival experience. Being part of the World Surf League (WSL) qualifying series (QS) guarantees an array of travelling international surfers as well as the best British surfers, all looking to qualify for the World Championship Tour (and enjoy the party afterwards). All of the WSL surf contests are held Fistral Beach and best of all, they’re free for all spectators.
Our surfing champions in 2016 were:
Men’s QS1000 SHANE CAMPBELL
Women’s QS1000 CLAIRE BEVILACQUA
Men’s LQS1000 (Longboard) EDOUARD DELPERO
Women’s LQS1000 (longboard) ALICE LEMOIGNE
WORLD SURF LEAGUE
The world famous international surf competition will again be included as part of the World Surf League qualifying series. Featuring as a QS1000 event, Boardmasters will host the Men’s QS1000, Women’s QS1000, Men’s LQS1000 (longboard) and Women’s LQS (longboard) contests. It is also exciting that the European leg of the WSL Longboard series will be completed at Boardmasters. Meaning the European Longboard Champion will be crowned on Fistral beach in August. This cements Boardmasters as the most high-profile surfing event in the UK.
Fistral Beach, the UK’s premier surfing destination, will again host Boardmasters with professional surfers travelling from around the globe to our beautiful Cornish beaches.
The highly anticipated Boardmasters QS1000 and LQS1000 will then run from Wednesday 9th August until Sunday 13th August 2017. Boardmasters will offer Britain’s best professional surfers, such as Ben Skinner, Luke Dillon, Adam Griffith, Lucy Campbell and Peony Knight the chance to compete at an international level whilst in home waters.
