The British Surfing Association (BSA) was founded 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.

The National Surfing Centre, Fistral Beach and the BSA Surf School, Lusty Glaze Beach are owned and run by the British Surfing Association. (B.S.A.). The surf schools play a key part in developing the sport of surfing in the U.K. and all the revenue goes directly back into funding the Association and helps to support surfing in the U.K.

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 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.
