About the event

Booking Information:

Welcome to the most popular camping event of the year at Sandy Acres campsite, the heart of Hayle Beach, Cornwall.


Book your ticket AFTER reading all of the conditions via the event link on the Bristol Surf Club Website.

Tickets will be a flat rate of £49 (including £1 bank transfer fee) per person for one, two or three nights stay. No non-members will be able to book on this trip or visit/stay on the campsite.

TICKETS WILL NOT BE REFUNDABLE as we have had people in the past cancel last minute due to flat surf conditions. 

Tickets will be on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Once the site is full we will stop the ticket sale and set up a reserve list for people who still want to come. If anyone has to cancel then they will be able to exchange their ticket to the first person on my list.

Although this is a members only event, children can attend with adult members of the club - payment for the child/ren staying needs to be made directly with Sandy Acres. The adult is responsible for the safety and behaviour of children in their care at all times - we'll allocate an area for members with children, pls select that option when you buy your ticket.

Site Information:

· Toilets and shower blocks are open. This campsite does not have disabled facilities.

· Dish washing facilities onsite.

· There is now a small shop onsite with a few essentials.

· Pets are welcome! (As long as you don’t own an elephant!).

· There is a small café next to the dunes in the beach car park. Open 10am to 5pm serving breakfast, lunch and dinner (if they are still on their summer times in Sept). Lots of shops and cafes in Hayle.

· No electric hook up points in our field.

· Wetsuit washing area available.

· Due to the delicate nature of the dune landscape there are no big fires onsite but small BBQ’s that are off the ground are allowed for cooking only. I am guessing we can have a fire on the beach AS LONG AS WE LEAVE NO TRACE AFTERWARDS!

· NO Noise after 11pm onsite Please respect the Dawnie Surfers and the campsite owners and team that live nearby.

· No drugs to be brought onsite, please.

· N.B. Anyone breaking the site rules will be asked to leave and could get banned from future events.

Please note: GATES LOCK AT 10pm on the road to the campsite but I will try to arrange for a later book-in for Friday as traffic will be BAD from Bristol and a lot of people will be coming after work. Will update you on that one. Otherwise you might have to walk with your tents to the site, which isn’t ideal.

· Check out is usually 11am but I will confirm that for Monday morning.

Location Details:

As I mentioned earlier, you can walk to the beach from this campsite but you will need a car or lift share to get to the other beaches depending on your needs. There are a lot of beaches to surf from here in both directions so dependent on the wind and swell direction.

Beach location and descriptions can be seen here…

Sandy Acres say that they do surf hire and lessons but if not then there are loads of places around here. The most popular are:

Surf shops are everywhere you look in Hayle!!

Member Details:

We are a friendly bunch so just ask if you need help or any other information onsite.

It is good to make contact with other members before you leave, so use the event page to leave comments for lift shares and to meet people who are at the same standard of surfing.

I am hoping it will be easier for all of us to meet in a large group once there but not necessarily at a pub or restaurant HOWEVER as we saw at our last event we managed to accommodate everyone in a spontaneous way. There will be splinter groups arranging activities for new members and others who organise sunset surfs and swims for whoever is keen. To keep abreast of all the information before and during the event LOOK AT THE COMMENTS in the event page on Facebook.

All extra activities are taken at your own risk and you will not be covered by the (third party) BSC insurance - this does not cover you personally, just liability to other whilst on an official trip.

PLEASE LEAVE NO TRACE at the campsite and beach. Pick up any rubbish and remember your bin/recycling bags. You are all responsible for our area and your own trash. Put all recycled and rubbish bags in the bins provided at the toilet blocks and not leave them on the field.

Remember to be kind and inclusive to all members. We welcome all genders and cultures, in fact I don’t know a better bunch of lovely people, so if you are struggling in any way then don’t be afraid to come and chat to one of the Committee members.

Again…this trip is for Bristol Surf Club Members ONLY.

Any other questions will be answered in the comments in the event page on the BSC Facebook.
