Gnarly dude! A Boardmasters 2011 preview

The essential guide to the surf, skate, and music festival

Gnarly dude! A Boardmasters 2011 preview

Owen Evans on 04 August 2011

The name may be a bit of a mouthful - Relentless Energy Boardmasters in association with Vans festival (or, erm.. REBIAWVF for short) – but it represents just how much it packs in: surf, skate and music all at the sunny (please!) haven of Newquay for three uninterrupted days of goofy-foots, half-pipes and Fatboy Slim. Stoked? Hell yeah!

Sounds sick, but what’s a goofy foot?

Get with the programme Big Kahuna; a goofy foot is when a surfer rides with their left foot as a lead.

Gotcha, what else is there to do? How about the music?

There are so many bands like my dreaded brother Newton Faulkner, acid-rave spacemen Klaxons, hip hop whippet Lethal Bizzle, to name a few. Plus there are loads of south-west-four-sw4-2009 where pro-skaters and surfers can compete for £10,000!  And don’t forget the 3 days of chillaxin by the beach. Bodacious!

Epic rantings from the wild eye-browed frontman that is Eddie Argos that make you wanna party like when you were 15.

Still going strong since he left Busted. This is a solo outing for the Fightstar man.

Can I listen to more?

Of course you can, with our Spotify playlist.


That all sounds good to me, but can I still get tickets or have they sailed away?
