Bundoran has long been associated with world-class surfing along with the neighbouring surfing destinations of Rossnowlagh, Streedagh, Iascaigh and Enniscrone.
To boost the appeal of the event, Bundoran will have plenty of music and entertainment on offer during the tournament including traditional Irish and contemporary music.
Mr Michael Ring T.D., Minister of State for Tourism and Sport welcomed the European Surfing Championships.
“I am very pleased to see such a prestigious and important surfing event taking place in the northwest. Eurosurf 2011 is not only an important surfing event but is also a positive showcase for Donegal and the northwest region as a tourism destination.
“I would like to welcome all visitors to Bundoran for this event and, with top class accommodation, music, culture, food and entertainment on offer, there will be plenty of opportunities for all to enjoy and sample a genuinely warm Irish welcome.”
