The UK Bodysurfing Association CIC are proud to announce their affiliation with Surfing England.
The UK Bodysurfing Association CIC was formed in 2016 and has since then been steadily growing the sport across the UK through its active membership scheme.
New members are very welcome to join the UK Bodysurfing Association CIC whilst current members have been able to get together through regular Meet Ups. This is increasingly being organised via social media whereby they have been able to chat together amongst themselves on Messenger, then gather at various locations to make friends and gain expertise.
In conjunction with UK Pro Surf the UK Bodysurfing Association CIC have held an annual UK Bodysurfing Championships at Fistral Beach, Newquay every year since 2017.
The UK Bodysurfing Championships 2020 are scheduled to take place over the weekend of 26-27th September. Further details regarding this year’s event will be published soon.
Although primarily based across England, there are members who represent Wales and Scotland within the group and 4 sub groups now exist within the UK Bodysurfing Association:- Bodysurfing England, Bodysurfing Scotland, Bodysurfing Wales and Bodysurfing Northern Ireland.
Through this newly formed affiliation with Surfing England (the National Governing Body for the sport) the Bodysurfing England section of the UK Bodysurfing Association CIC is recognised as the official body for bodysurfing in England.
The UK Bodysurfing Association CIC are also a founder member of Euro Bodysurf and this newly formed affiliation with Surfing England will enable Bodysurfing England to hold events under this banner too (the member countries consisting of: France, Portugal, Morocco, Spain and the UK).
In order to simplify matters, the annual UK Bodysurfing Championships has recently been incorporated within the UK Bodysurfing Association CIC’s terms of reference.
Surfing England and the UK Bodysurfing Association CIC look forward to working together in order to advance the sport of bodysurfing thereby raising the profile both here and around the globe.
