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 UK Pro Surf Tour takes in six stops in all, with the final one back in Newquay, Cornwall in November.
It will arrive at Surf Snowdonia on October 21, 2018, when the UK’s top male, and female surfers will compete in a knock-out competition format for the first ever Surf Snowdonia Pro Surf Challenge. Competitors, who qualify on merit, will also include Welsh ‘wildcard’ surfers. There will be a substantial cash prize in each category.
The Surf Snowdonia Pro Surf Challenge will be an all-day event which will take place on the first Sunday of the UK half term school holiday. It is set to draw a large family crowd, and will be a day of friendly but hugely exciting and intense competition. Entry to watch the event, which has been sponsored by Conwy Council, will be free of charge.
There will be indoor as well as outdoor seated and standing viewing areas, and free parking on site. Refreshments and snacks will be available all day at the Surf Snowdonia restaurant, deli and bar.
