2023 Caravan and Motorhome Club English National Surfing Championships – age based and bodyboard categories info

The 2023 Caravan and Motorhome Club English National Surfing Championships are running in two halves this year. Event preparations for the 15th – 16th April Men’s and Women’s shortboard open are firmly underway – entry is open until Monday 10th April – all the info here. 

The contest will continue in full swing on 12th – 14th May at its iconic home of Watergate Bay, Cornwall, where we have capacity for a full three days, double peak surfing competition. At this event shortboard surfers are invited to compete in their respective age-based category, so we expect a thriving junior and seniors’ scene. We also launch bodyboard divisions at this contest, the first time in many years that bodyboarders will have the opportunity to claim a prestigious English title.
