Surfing GB is here for the support and development of Surfing in Great Britain, with events playing a major part in this.
In 2016 Surfing GB are focused on building on our previous successes and making improvements throughout, with the aim of bringing excellent, professional and respected events to you the British Surf community. With that in mind we have detailed our event schedule with as much information as we have to date and have made some minor changes to our systems;

Updates for Surfers;
- Entry will now close at 5pm on the Monday before the event (5 days). This is a change from previous (Wednesday 5pm).
- Entry as normal is based on a first come first served basis, however we will be stricter on division capacities and will close an entry once capacity is reached, after which point Surfers will be added to an alternate list.
- There will be 2 Rip Curl Grom Search events, compared to the previous years of 3.
- We are aiming to launch and use an online entry system.
