The Boardmasters Festival is an annual event held in Newquay. The event is a combination of live music and a surf & skate contest.

The majority of the music performances take place to the north of Newquay near Watergate Bay. The Men's Pro 5 Star WQS surf competition takes place on Fistral Beach where a skate ramp is built for the BMX and Skateboard competitions.[1]

Music Festival[edit]

In 2010 acts such as Plan B, Leftfield, Newton Faulkner and Ricta will be performing at Watergate Bay across 3 stages on Friday and Saturday. As well as music there is a variety of bars and fairground rides on the site. [2]

Surf & Skate[edit]

At Fistral Beach the surf, BMX and skate competitions take place along with more music during the evenings. A small mini-ramp is set up on the headland and the vert ramp is built in the beach car park. A purpose built beach bar hosts the acts which in 2010 included The Futureheads, Zero 7 and Reverend Soundsystem.
