"Everyone's really excited about kicking off the season in Newquay," said tour manager Rob Gunning. "The Boardmasters have been on our schedule for years in the past and it's definitely one of the athletes' favorites. With only two events this season, every result will count and we expect great battles out there. The Women's division is an exciting new addition to the surf festival. I'm sure the crowds will love all the action from their favorite local surfers and some of the best pros on tour."

Event organizers and surfers will meet at 8 a.m. local time August 8 to decide if conditions allow competition to start at Fistral.
