Yep, it’s sadly true, and the official statement is below and it’s devastating for everyone who has been involved setting up the event and taking part, especially those travelling down to Boardmasters and looking forward to it. Hand on heart, we are ALL massively gutted beyond belief.
As it stands the surf comp is still rolling down at Fistral Beach with the surf village and skate ramp still very active today with events still happening on and around Fistral, the Carve X Surfgirl, Quiksilver Roxy party at the Beach Bar still on tomorrow night at Fistral FREE entry 6pm-late.
We will keep you all updated as we get more information. Head down to Fistral Beach people and get involved and support what’s still happening through this challenging time for the event.
BOARDMASTERS 2019 HAS BEEN CANCELLED OFFICIAL STATEMENT.
Due to forecasted severe weather conditions, specifically high winds, Boardmasters 2019 has been cancelled.
Following full consultation with all of the relevant authorities including independent safety advisors, Devon and Cornwall Police, emergency services and the Met Office, a final decision was made yesterday evening (6th August).
The safety of you, the fans and attendees, as well as performers and crew comes first, and the potential risk is too severe for the event to go ahead at this time.
Refund advice will be shared as soon as possible – please follow Boardmasters’ social media for official updates.
We sincerely regret the disappointment to fans, and apologise for any disruption caused to local businesses, performers and crew who were looking forward to Boardmasters as much as we were.
