U12s and U14s shortboard, and SUP are go for Saturday

Part 2 of the Nationals will now be held as a one-day event on Saturday 18th May

After the initial date of 4th-6th May was postponed due to poor surf conditions, the anticipation has been building for the second instalment of the 2024 Caravan and Motorhome Club English National Surfing Championships.

We are thrilled to be able to call the event ON… With a new one-day event on Saturday 18th May at Watergate Bay in Newquay!

Due to small surf over the 3 days of the event, we have made the decision to cut down to a one-day event on Saturday. We extend a warm welcome to the nation’s finest Under 12 and Under 14 shortboarders and SUP surfers as they come together for the prestigious 2024 Caravan and Motorhome Club English National Surfing Championships.

With the surf forecast showing a fun 2 foot of surf on Saturday, the stage is set for a competitive showdown. A total of 84 surfers have entered across 6 divisions, ensuring over 15 hours of gripping competition heats, split across two wave peaks. The event kicks off bright and early on Saturday, with thrilling action carrying through to late afternoon when the event’s top surfers will be crowned with National titles.

Over the weekend, beach lifeguards from CG Safety Cover will be on hand to keep everyone safe in the water. As well as a double peak contest, meaning double the surfing action, spectators are invited to join our beach games zone. Thank you to our sponsor DecathlonUK for providing these amazing beach games, which guarantees fun for all the family!

Watch the surfing unfold as surfers battle to claim 2024 Caravan and Motorhome Club English National Surfing championship titles.
