Hello, you've reached the home of the World Bellyboard Championships

From St Agnes Head to Lennox Head, Churchtown to Dogtown, Peterville to Pipeline the cry goes out to prepare once again to make the pilgrimage down the hill into the timeless valley of Chapel Porth and gather in celebration of the World Bellyboard Championships. The 13th annual event presented by the National Trust will showcase the very best in prone wooden construction surf craft, vintage swimwear, mastery and disastery of wave riding prowess.

Organised and hosted by National Trust the event is attended by enthusiasts and curious onlookers in their hundreds, as well as brave wave riders of all ages and abilities. Bill Makin, NT General Manager who looks after this stunning north coast location says "We are delighted to welcome visitors old and new to take part in this unique event at one of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall (and therefore the world !) The Trust's sensitive management of Chapel Porth for over 50 years has allowed it to retain the raw unspoilt beauty that has attracted ply riders since the early days of the sport. Our Mid Cornwall team, based in St Agnes, will be pulling out all the stops alongside collectors, craftsmen, makers, shapers and contributors to make this small part of Cornwall the centre of the bellyboarding world on 6th September 2015"

Special thanks to our lifelong sponsors Skinners Brewery……

Cheers !!
