< Newquay - Fistral (Beach) last 24 hours Issued at:

9-13 August - Whether you're going to check out the surfing or the music, check the Fistral Beach weather forecast before heading to Boardmasters.

The weather is an essential part of a surfing, and without it, surfers would have no wave to ride in the ocean. Waves are formed by wind blowing over the surface of the ocean, with the energy allowing the wave to move forward.

Surfers would ideally like to experience strong winds blowing for a prolonged time to create a series of big waves to ride for competition.

For further information about this event, check the  Boardmasters official website.

You can check the weather forecast for other events through the Events Calendar.
