Since 2009 BUCS and Outgoing Limited have worked together on packages for the Surf Championships in Newquay during October and have watched the event grow year on year and become a highlight on the student sport calendar. The packages have included local travel to beaches, clubs and back to the camp site accommodation, event wristband plus the official opening and closing parties with headline acts.
For this year’s event our historical accommodation provider is not willing to take on large groups any longer due to reducing the sites capacity and introducing it as a family site. All other options have been reviewed over the past months and the other local sites that could house the numbers we bring to the championships are not willing to take large groups.
A list of local accommodation is provided below, for those who have not yet booked places to stay for the championships.

We can appreciate that this unprecedented stance by local large group accommodation providers is not ideal but we have been working on many options and have been let down several times by providers. The resort does have capacity to house student surf groups but booked on an individual group basis direct with accommodation providers rather than on the usual packages we offer.
We are offering an entertainments package however with entry into the opening and closing parties along with headline DJ’s and acts. More information to follow about tickets for this and the acts to follow on this website and the BUCS Surf Champs facebook soon.
The championships will still go ahead as planned with entries closing on 1st October 2015 for the competition, entries via BUCS score and must be entered by your Athletic Union.
