Boardmasters Big Spring Beach Clean - Fistral & Watergate

We love the Cornish coastline...

From hazy, sun-filled beach days to epic dawn patrol surfs, and being the home of Boardmasters - we simply couldn't imagine life without it.

For almost 20 years we've worked closely with our long standing partner Surfers Against Sewage to implement sustainable & environmental strategies at Boardmasters, that grow greater year on year. We're learning, and we know we're far from perfect, but we strive to do our best and improve where we can. From litter bonds to the Green Team, beach cleans to the mammoth post-festival clean up operation, reducing single use plastics to implementing a cup deposit scheme; our mission is to reduce our environmental impact and run an enjoyable, sustainable festival.

Hugo Tagholm, CEO of Surfers Against Sewage says: “Surfers Against Sewage is thrilled to be the long-standing charity partner of the Boardmasters Festival and engage festival-goers with our environmental campaigns to protect waves, oceans and beaches for everyone. We saw some amazing results this year, with record levels of engagement with our Plastic Free Coastlines campaign. Our reusable water bottle collaboration with Visa saw thousands of people engage with the refill revolution and stopped thousands of single-use plastic water bottles from being used on site. The litter bonds and ‘Litter Asbos’ also captured people’s imagination and helped the big clear up at the end of the event. We’re stoked with how much progress the festival green team is making and look forward to even more ‘plastic free’ activations on site in 2018.”

We're pleased to join forces with Surfers Against Sewage as part of their 'Big Spring Beach Clean' campaign to hold beach cleans on two of our favourite beaches in Newquay - Fistral and Watergate Bay - and we need YOUR help!

We invite you to join us across the weekend of 14th & 15th April 2018 to volunteer with us, and protect what you love.
