The iconic surfing and music festival Boardmasters Surf Open returns from August 7-11, 2024 in Cornwall. Find out all you need to know.

The tradition continues! For a ninth consecutive year the festival comes back with WSL Qualifying Series and Longboard divisions, men and women this summer. Plus the next generation of world class groms will battle it out in the Boardmasters Junior Open. Athlete entries will be opening in the coming weeks.

Boardmasters always launches the European summer season on the WSL tours and offers a great chance for surfers to build momentum at the start of the long leg of European events.

Past winners include the who’s who of European professional surfing as well as international athletes coming to enjoy a piece of the British summer vibes. It’s both an opportunity for local athletes to challenge some of the best competitors on the QS as well as for the British fans to feast on high-performance surfing on their local beach breaks.
This week, Boardmasters reveal their new poster for the Boardmasters Surf Open event. The poster has been designed by local artist Clara Jonas. Clara is an artist, illustrator and graphic designer based in Newquay, Cornwall. For Clara, the time spent in the ocean, surfing, swimming or being outside is the most valuable, and the most enjoyable when she can connect with those who share the same values, be that through work or play.
