Luke is one of Britain’s most successful men's competitive shortboard surfers both in the UK and internationally in recent years. His list of achievements are impressive with highlights including being the youngest ever winner of the British National Mens Open Surfing Championship and the UKPSA Mens Surf Tour. He’s also picked up numerous prestigious awards including Men's International Competitor Of The Year’ (Carve Magazine) and ‘Services To The Sport Of Surfing’ (UKPSA).
"When I was a kid, it was awesome watching all the International Pro Surfers coming to Newquay and competing, I tried to surf with them as much as possible, and I loved watching the contest and the buzz that surrounds it. It’s an honour to be a Boardmasters Ambassador, and to surf an International event on my home beach is pretty special." - Luke Dillon
2019 sees Luke scheduled to compete around the world in the WSL QS Tour and we can’t wait to get behind him!
