The BRITISH SURFING ASSOCIATION (BSA) was founded in 1966 to promote the sport of surfing and represent the interests of all surfers in Great Britain and the Channel Islands. The BSA is recognised by the Government as the National Governing Body (NGB) for surfing and is a member of the International Surfing Association (ISA).
Providing an open and democratic NGB with over ten thousand members, the BSA is a non-profit organisation with all income used for the advancement of British surfing.
Among the functions the BSA fulfils on behalf of British surfers are:
The selection and management of British Teams, making sure our best can compete at world events.
The Coaching Accreditation Scheme, training coaches to teach surfing in Great Britain and the Channel Islands.
The British Surf School Approval Scheme, working with surf schools to improve safety.
Organising and hosting the major competitions, including the British National Championship for shortboard, longboard, bodyboard and kneeboard events.

Just received news that The Cornwall Tourism Awards has shortlisted Global Boarders for the Leisure Experience of the Year Award 2009. Global Boarders had the ultimate success last year winning Gold for Leisure Experience of the Year; Silver for Sustainability and the much coveted Winner of Winners; they went on to win Silver at the regional South West Tourism Awards as well. Fingers crossed that a Blue Gym member can put watersports on the map as a top tourist attraction once again and maybe go all the way through to the National Awards…

If you are interested in learning to surf and were wondering about the type of people who give it a try, take a look at the 50th Birthday Party film from the ‘Videos’ menu above – you’ll see surfing is perfect for all ages!
