Fistral Beach will once again be the home of the Boardmasters WSL surf competitions along with its iconic Beach Bar and Surf Village.

The Boardmasters Fistral Beach build is already underway. As we continue build the event, areas of parking will be gradually closed:

Fistral Car Park (lower section)

Closed from 6pm Saturday 3 August - 7am Wednesday 14 August 2019. 

Fistral Car Park (upper section)

Closed from 7am Sunday 4 August - 7am Tuesday 13 August 2019. 

Tower Headland Car Park

Closed from 7am Monday 5 August - 7am Tuesday 13 August 2019. 

We endeavour to undertake our build and derig phases with minimal impact to residents and businesses and maintain essential access for those on Headland Road and Fistral Beach. To ensure the safety of pedestrians and festival goers a road closure will be operating on Headland Road from Monday 5 Aug ust to Monday 12  August from 8am - 8pm each day



Our The Beach Bar at Fistral Beach will be hosting Boardmasters welcome events on both Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 August from 6pm - late, hosted by the likes of Quiksilver, Roxy, Carve Magazine and House of Apres. We welcome members of the community to these events to join us in celebrating the beginning of this year’s Boardmasters.



Applications for this year’s Boardmasters Foundation are now closed. We will begin processing applications from September 2019.

The Boardmasters Foundation is funded by donations from guestlist tickets and car park re-entry fees. In 2018 the Boardmasters Foundation donated £53,696 to local organisations and charities.
