2020 English National Surfing Championships to be Completed

We are delighted to inform the English Surfing Community that the majority of the remaining divisions of the 2020 Caravan and Motorhome Club English National Surfing Championships will run on 10th – 11th October 2020 at Watergate Bay, Cornwall.

Surfing England have been closely following the coronavirus pandemic throughout 2020. Whilst we were incredibly pleased to run the first half of the English Nationals in Mid-March just before lockdown we have been working tirelessly to find a way to deliver the remaining Junior Shortboard Divisions (U12, U14 and U16) and Longboard Divisions (U18 Boys & Girls, Men’s Open and Women’s Open). Unfortunately, due to restrictions, the Seniors, Masters, and Veterans will not run for 2020 as Team England Squads are prioritised. We really hope to bring these divisions back for 2021!

What: 2020 Caravan and Motorhome Club English National Surfing Championships

Where: Watergate Bay, Cornwall

When: 10th – 11th October

Tina Beresford, Surfing England Board Member and established surfer states “it’s fantastic that even with all the challenges of 2020 Surfing England have managed to ensure that more divisions of the English national surfing championships can take place allowing the opportunity for England’s best longboarders and young shortboarders to showcase their skills and compete for a national title.”

Harvey Alexander, Director of Marketing and Membership Services, Caravan and Motorhome Club Headline Sponsor said, “It’s awesome news the competition is running this year. We’re super proud to continue our support of Surfing England and the whole surfing community.  We know that many surfers use campervans and caravans to travel to events and stay near the coast so they can indulge their passion for surfing.  The Club operates over 30 sites near to great coastal destinations and these are firm favourites with surfers.  We applaud the great work of Surfing England to encourage people to get outdoors and be more active, the health benefits are so important.”

Due to covid-19 restrictions this event will be limited entrants with highest performing athletes and Team England squad members prioritised, single peak only and run with live scoring. The aim of this event is to award the remaining English National Champion titles for 2020.
