Caravan and Motorhome Club cements relationship with surfing

Surfing at Watergate Bay

Owning a leisure vehicle goes hand-in-hand with the outdoor lifestyle and many caravan and motorhome fans enjoy activities from cycling to surfing as they travel around in their vans.

Reflecting this connection, the Caravan and Motorhome Club (CAMC) is continuing to support the world of surfing.

Not only is the CAMC the official accommodation partner of Surfing England, but it’s also the headline sponsor of the English National Surfing Championships.

The event will run at Cornwall’s world-renowned Watergate Bay from May 6th to 8th and will see elite surfers pitted against each other to be named the champion.

Even if you’re not quite at that level, you can still enjoy 30 of the Club’s sites that feature a surfing beach nearby.

As well as enjoying all the facilities associated with a CAMC park, surfers can take advantage of special areas dedicated to drying wetsuits.

Brian Morgan, head of communications and events at the CAMC said: “The Caravan and Motorhome Club’s members are a community of intrepid adventurers who embrace the outdoor lifestyle and all the benefits it brings and we are proud to support Surfing England.

“We are the number one rated touring club in the UK and operate the largest number of top-quality campsites set in beautiful and scenic locations in the UK and work with over 340 campsites in Europe – many close by to some of the best surfing venues.”

This was backed up by Hannah Brand, operations manager at Surfing England, who said that surfers are intuitively explorers by nature, underlining the good fit between the two organisations.

She added that surfing is enjoying more interest than ever after it made its debut as an event in the 2020 Olympics.

Surfing could be the perfect activity to try on your next caravan or motorhome getaway and staying on a CAMC site can help with the logistics.
