Things are heating up at Watergate Bay

So most Cornish based surfers enjoy Watergate for its peak swell on the North end, forming powerful and running right handers. As well as the high tide banks and the jawdropping cliff views. But this year you can enjoy it for even more.
Contest surf fans roll up, because Watergate's now the stage for two of the year's prime UK surf events.
The English National Surfing Championships runs on the 30th April to the 2nd May. It's already received a tonne of support and excitement following its announcement in October of commitment to equal prize funds for the male and female open categories

This long running national competition is also grounds for selection for the surfers representing England in the upcoming Junior Euro Surf. Expect the top groms to showcase their talents among the swell gem of Watergate this bank holiday weekend.
The Surfaced Pro runs from the 16th to the 17th April. This is a new contest and will be kicking off the 2016 UK Pro Surf Tour. Expect the UK's best surfers to arrive fresh off a winter's training to show us their new moves and battle out to start the season in the best position they can. The Surface Pro has also recently confirmed their support for gender equality in surfing with equal prize funds.
