We are delighted to confirm that top national surf event – the UK Pro Surf Tour – is heading inland to our world-first surf lagoon again this year for what will be a brilliant family day out in the October half term.
The tour, which is in its 20th year, is the only national pro surf competition in the world to take place on an inland lagoon. And not just any inland surf lagoon – a world-first piece of engineering right here in the heart of beautiful Snowdonia!
It called at Surf Snowdonia for the first time in 2016, when over 2,000 of you came to watch the UK’s best surfers going head-to-head in a knockout style showcase contest.
This year’s event, which is sponsored by Conwy Council, will take place on Sunday 22nd October 2017. Entry – and parking – will be free of charge, and you can expect a mini festival atmosphere with refreshments, music and family-friendly activities to complement all the action on the waves.
The UK Pro Surf Tour showcases the best surfing locations – as well as the best surfers – in the UK. Hosting the tour is a great opportunity for us to showcase some of the UK’s most exciting surfers and put on a unique, feel-good event.
Spectators will be able to watch from indoor and outdoor viewing areas, and there will be live music, with refreshments and food served all day at our cafés, deli and bar. Limited B&B glamping will be available from £25 per person per night with campervan pitches from £20 – but we anticipate plenty of demand so don’t hang around if you want to book!
We’ll announce the names of the surfers taking part in the Surf Snowdonia UK Pro Surf Challenge over the coming weeks. Hope to see you there!
