The 2014 Boardmasters Festival at Watergate Bay has been cancelled today due to the weather conditions caused by Hurricane Bertha. Surf Report’s Mat Chapman has provided our readers with regular updates while at the surfing and music event in Cornwall, although his latest update sadly reveals the cancelling of its Festival.
Mat explained the official website released a statement in regard to the weather conditions. The extreme weather caused the organisers to put the performers, their staff, and guests first when considering safety at the arena site thanks to winds left over from Hurricane Bertha. It was the final day of Boardmasters for 2014.
Are you disappointed that the 2014 Boardmasters Festival at Watergate Bay has been cancelled, or is this expected in light of the conditions?
It’s worth noting that the international surf competition is continuing at the Fistral Beach site and the winds will help create great surf, although safety will still be a factor with the conditions being monitored. You can keep track of all the updates on our Boardmasters hub page.
