To celebrate the festival's 30th anniversary, the Men's ASP surf event has been upgraded to six stars. They will also introduce longboarding to better represent surfing as a whole.

Speaking about the changes, Andrew Topham, event director, said: “The Relentless Boardmasters is, at its heart, a surfing event. While the festival continues to grow it is very important to us that surfing is recognised and never overlooked. We are incredibly excited about our new additions, as well as our improved rating in the Men's ASP event, allowing for the UK to witness the very best."
