Girls from all over the UK will also be able to compete in a Rip Curl Girls Tour pro/am surf competition in association with Cornwall Surfer Girls. Cornwall Surfer Girls is a BSA affiliated club for surfer girls of all ages and abilities, with the aim of supporting and promoting progression in girls’surfing and creating a network and community of girl surfers in Cornwall. This year’s pro/am competition will be judged as a series, girls will accumulate points at each venue and the top performers will compete in the finals at St Ives for a £1000 prize.

The night of music and fun will be for the girls to let their hair down after a day on the water, and each girl will go home with a tip top goody bag full of girl’s essentials including Rip Curl and Hawaiian Tropic treats.

The live at the Crow Rooms will see Ruarri Joseph and his band take to the stage for a rare performance in the county. Last time Ruarri played a show with his band in Cornwall was a sold out show at the Princess Pavilion in Falmouth to celebrate the launch of his second critically acclaimed, album ‘Both Sides of the Coin’. Those that were at that show will know what a brilliant gig it was and that this a rare chance to see Ruarri and co in such intimate surroundings.

Since that show Ruarri has been busy playing shows all over the place with the likes of Newton Faulkner and Jason Mraz and has recently released third single from the album ‘More than Most’.

Support on the night comes from Max Tuohy who is making waves nationwide and has recently been signed to RCA, you can expect big things from the young Max. Don’t miss this chance to see both of these great live acts at this special one off event, and for free!
