If lazing on the beach, listening to your favourite bands play live, or raving the night away on a rooftop isn't enough to tempt you to this year's Beach Break Live, then perhaps the extreme sport extravaganza can woo you down.

The music festival organisers are hosting windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing and wakeboarding competitions for daredevil students in need of a thrill.

Taking place in the surfing town of Newquay in Cornwall, the festival looks set to stand out from the rest with its boat parties, beach raves and greasy spoon jams.

The Cuban Brothers, Krafty Kuts, Jake Bugg and AlunaGeorge are already confirmed for the line-up, with many more talented artists and DJs taking to the various stages around the festival.

Happening over two of England's best beaches, Beach Breakers can take to the water at either Watergate Bay or Fistral Beach between 20-24 June, competing against hundreds of semi-professional, professional and country wide societies for the title of Extreme Sports Champion.

Last year's winner and professional kitesurfer, Ali Barratt says: "I'm stoked about the move down to Newquay, it's such a perfect setting for Beach Break.

"Music on the beach, kiting competitions at Watergate bay and we've got the wake board pool gap right next to the campsite! What more could you ask for?

This year "The Pool Gap" returns and festival goers will be able to watch the danger filled Wakeboarding competition right from their tents. The Student Windsurfing Association will be putting on a spectacular show with a team racing competition and an "Expression Session" style competition where competitors will be judged on wave riding, jumping and freestyle moves.

We've got to admit, we're pretty chuffed to be this year's media partners - see you on the beach!
