The UK Pro Tour is the only series of pro surf events held in the UK. Events that are held in some of the best surf locations from the world class waves of Scotland to the hustle and bustle of the south west coast. The tour aim is to encourage the development of surfing talent in the UK right from the grass roots groms through to the World Tour contenders. This is achieved by competing in a wide variety of locations for a substantial financial reward. The profile of both the sponsors and the Surfing locations will be heightened through the involvement of the media and marketing campaigns.
Established in 1998 the UK Pro Surf Tour has gone from strength to strength, initially only comprising the men’s and women’s open divisions, it now encompasses a longboard category and a Pro Junior event but even more significantly a further seven junior divisions.
Now in 2016, the UK Pro Surf Tour includes Major Surf Events in the UK including the Thurso Surf Festival, held in one of the best waves in the world. Scarborough Surf Festival, UK Schools Pro Am, not to forget the legendary Nightsurf. In addition this year we will have events at World Class waves in Lynmouth and Llantwit. Plus the first UKPSA Wave Pool event at Surf Snowdonia.
