Boardmasters Foundation proudly supporting UKPSA Pro Surf Tour

We are extremely pleased and privileged to receive support from Boardmasters foundation. Without their help it would be difficult to deliver the competitive opportunity the UKPSA tour provides.

The Boardmasters Festival has been linked to the UKPSA Pro Surf Tour since 1998, when alongside the ASP (WSL) event, the first ever tour event took place, won by Newcastle’s Gabriel Davies! This relationship has been strong ever since with the tour providing a competitive pathway to compete at the highest level.

For the last three years Boardmasters have been giving wildcards to the leaders of the Men’s and Women’s divisions providing incentive to push performance levels in the sport. In addition the funding goes toward supporting the development of the competitive surfing, helping to provide eight junior categories. These juniors will ultimately be aiming to be on the podium at the Boardmasters one day!
