With a ban on wetsuits, those taking part brave the Atlantic in everything from vintage bathing suits to more modern swim kits, with prizes for the best swimwear and swimming hats.
The hotly-contested categories include the ever-popular Expressions Sessions, as well as categories for seniors, youngsters and juniors. Judges look for the length of ride, wave selection, change of direction, style and the most radical manoeuvres in the critical part of the wave.
