The inclusion of the world-first inland wave lagoon on the UK Pro Surf schedule is a major development for the tour, which showcases for the best surfing locations as well as the best surfers in the UK.
The UK Pro Surf Tour, which kicked off in April at Watergate Bay, sees the UK’s best surfers travelling the length and breadth of the country – as far north as Thurso in Scotland – in search of the best waves. The Tour takes in six stops in all, with the final one back in Newquay, Cornwall in October.
It will arrive at Surf Snowdonia on September 16th, 2018, when the UK’s top male, and female surfers will compete in a knock-out competition format for the third Surf Snowdonia Pro Surf Challenge. There will be a substantial cash prize in each category for the Fistral Beach Men’s Open and the Women’s.
