This weekend's South Coast Surf Championships have been postponed.
Contest director Paul Clarke, of Bournemouth Surfing Centre, said: "It looks like nice weather but no surf this weekend, so we've postponed the competition for a week."
The competition, which has been running since the 1960s, was due to be held in Boscombe this Saturday and Sunday.
David Somerville, of event sponsor A1 Surf, said: "The contest will be postponed until the following weekend sadly due to a lack of waves for this weekend."
He added: "We are really pleased to be able to sponsor the South Coast Championships. We feel it's very important to support the surfing community through events and are really looking forward to the weekend."
The first heats will take place at 8am on both days with a presentation at around 3.30pm on Sunday.
Saturday's contest will be mainly shortbaord heats and quarter finals.
Sunday's events include the shortboard and longboard finals.
