Rock Reef

The north coast of Cornwall, is one of the best places in Europe for surfing. Here is a guide to surfing in Cornwall, whether experienced or just beginning.

Known as the House of the British Surfing and home to the British Surfing Association, Newquay offers some of the best surfing, because there are good beaches for all types of surfers. The best and most famous surfing beach Fistral. These fun, firing waves are frequented by local professionals, but the wave is good for all levels. Summer Crowds flock to the sandy beaches of 3 Newquay Bay, where waves can be good for beginners and surf schools, but too many people to navigate seriously. Whipsaderry is another good, albeit with fewer people, beach break. Crantock is a moody break in the mouth of the river which can be good, with "beach break Kiddie Corner" is good for beginners.

North of Newquay is the town of Bude, which is surrounded by decent surf breaks duck pool, Northcott Mouth, Summerleaze, and Uptown. The best jump sandy beach around the mouth of Bude, just north of the city. The crowd is not as bad here as in Newquay. On the way from Newquay to Bude, you can find waves with little people in the hollow, barreling reef breaks like Rusty and right Riglio or beaches or Polzeth softer.

West Cornwall also offers some solid surf, no matter the direction of the waves. Godrevy Reef is a good big wave breaks on the rock hollow. There is a wave of left and right. This place is not suitable for beginners. Perranuthnoe is a fun beach break offers both left and right handers. This point is not too crowded and good for intermediate and advanced surfers. West Cornwall also has a breaking point just as Newlyn Harbor, Penhale Corner, and St. Ives Harbor that work well in certain elevation directions, but may have hazards such as strong start rocks.

South Cornwall and other beach offers some very nice reefs, points and river mouths. Gribbin is a turning point knucklehead left that breaks over sand and rock, so it is a super fun place different currents and difficult to access. Mandsands is a thick, hollow reef break which includes the Atlantic channel and swells. The walks are short, but memorable. Bantham can be fun, but fickle break in the river mouth that is well suited for long boarding.
