Change for the British Surfing Association
In 1966, the same year that England raised the World Cup, the British Surfing Association was born. The purpose of the association was to represent the interests of surfers throughout Britain, and work to promote the sport of surfing around the UK.
However at the end of 2010, following a period of financial instability, the British Surfing Association was put into voluntary liquidation. In total the Surfing Associaton owed £49,318 to a number of creditors including HM Revenue & Customs, and the RNLI.
Goodbye British Surfing Association, Hello Surfing GB!
In January 2011 a new company was formed to take over from the British Surfing Association as the UK’s governing body for surfing. This new company is called Surfing GB.
The aim of Surfing GB is to build on the strengths of the British Surfing Association in order to work towards a brighter future for the UK surfing scene.
The Surfing GB website is a great source of information for any one looking for information regarding surf schools and surf coach qualifications.
