Contest organisers are aiming to run with live scoring – we will share the link on our social media @SurfingEngland once we have it!

For surfers looking to make the British Surfing Team, this event no longer guarantees places in the team but is still a well-respected prestige title. British Surfing said “The 2022 British Cup will crown British Champions but will not necessarily be used as an automatic GB Team Qualifier event. This is due to the fact that the selection policy for various GB Squads and ISA Team selection is currently under review. This is due for publication by the end of the year.”
