The BamBooBay UK Bodysurfing Championships 2021 are being organised by the UK Bodysurfing Association CIC, supported by Surfing England, and DMC Fins are back supporting the UK bodysurfing scene for another year.
World renowned for their swim fins, they also produce a variety of handboards called Mini Boards.
A global enterprise, DMC’s base is Sydney, Australia. At the helm is Don McCredie, whose bodysurfing and swimming knowledge, combined with fin product innovation, has resulted to create a line of products that suit the beginner through to the serious aquatic athlete. They are just perfect for getting that quick take off, so necessary in bodysurfing.
Don is not just an entrepreneur, in recent years he has himself won a World Championships Bodysurfing award, in the ‘Masters’ age group.
The REPELLOR FINS model has been used with great success in bodysurfing – and is also used in bodyboarding, lifeguarding, competitions, open water swim training and snorkelling.
Now – all around the world – top class swimmers are turning to DMC Fins for training and surfers and ocean people are using DMC REPELLOR fins as their choice for aquatic propulsion!
The UK Champs are making a name in supporting sustainable manufacturers wherever it can, already sponsored by BamBooBay makers of quality sustainable clothing.
It is a pleasure to have WAW involved again. WAW Handplanes themselves manufacture handplanes from sustainable timbers, as well as utilising Yulex pure bio plant based rubber for adjustable hand straps.
Their newest edition to the range is the WAW Badfish which they proudly produce from recycled ocean plastics.
WAW Badfish Handplanes
WAW Handplanes was founded by Devon man Rikki Gilbey and although based in Sydney, Australia are supporting the UK Champs for the 3rd time in recent years!
Incidentally, WAW stands for wave after wave and large ones are what the Championships are hoping for!

BamBooBay to be Champs Key Sponsor
The UK Bodysurfing Association CIC are extremely proud to announce that sustainable clothing manufacturer, BamBooBay, are to be their key sponsor for this year’s Championships, which will be titled the ‘BamBooBay UK Bodysurfing Championships 2021’.
Organised by the UK Bodysurfing Association CIC and supported by Surfing England, The BamBooBay UK Bodysurfing Championships 2021 are to take place at Fistral Beach, Newquay, England over the weekend 4-5th September 2021. They are open to competitors from around the world, and spectators are welcome too.
Bodysurfing has always had a very close affinity with the sea and the waves, one person matching their skill directly against the full power of the ocean. It therefore goes without saying that the UK Bodysurfing Association CIC cares deeply about protecting the environment now, and into the future.
BamBooBay are therefore an ideal partner for them, with sustainability being at the forefront of the brands ethos. Through utilising organic and recycled materials, BamBooBay’s manufacturing process reflects a shared interest to encourage a more sustainable way of life.
Chemicals used in manufacturing processes can have a tremendous impact on the earth’s air, water, soil, and the health of people in cotton-growing areas. However, they are largely eliminated through BamBooBay’s ethical production process. BamBooBay carefully curates the use of organic cottons and bamboo to best elevate their products, always with the environment at the forefront of their minds.
BamBooBay are very excited to be involved with the UK Bodysurfing Association CIC as the sport of bodysurfing continues to grow in the UK. BamBooBay wish to be involved in the growth of the sport here in the UK and also as it expands through Euro Bodysurf. Euro Bodysurf is a series of bodysurfing events held across several member countries; France, Portugal, Spain, Morocco and England.
A message from BamBooBay:
“The level of commitment to put on the event from the UK Bodysurfing Association and Surf England is admirable. We can’t wait to work together with these two great organisations to push the sport and event further each year. It’s going to be a really fun couple of days and we hope to see a lot of people getting involved and enjoying themselves.”
