UK Bodysurfing Championships C.I.C.

The DMC Fins UK Bodysurfing Championships 2018 are to be held at Fistral Beach, Newquay on the weekend of 22nd/23rd September.

The DMC Fins UK Bodysurfing Championships will be an open event, open to UK bodysurfers as well as bodysurfers from all around the world.

The event is now open for all competitors to enter – please fill in an Entry Form, either in pdf version or word version. All UK Bodysurfers will need to be current members of the UK Bodysurfing Association.

Please use the contact form to make any enquiries about the event.

This years event will feature two contests, one for those with handboards, one without. There will be 24 contestants in each contest, with both events open to male and female competitors.

UK Bodysurfing plan to hold the whole event on the Saturday, with Sunday available as a back up day – if needed.

Thanks to Korev Cornish Lager and the Fistral Beach Bar there will be a Chill Out in the Fistral Beach Bar following the events, where the main prize giving will take place.

This event is also being sponsored by Slyde Handboards, WAW Handplanes and Bodds Active Swimwear, and would not go ahead without the assistance of UK Pro Surf.

Entry fees for each event will be £30, and competitors will be able to enter both if they wish. There is a reduction for entering both events.

There may also be a small Expression Session taking place if time allows.
