I have to admit, I don't get in the sea anywhere near as much as I should and I don't even own a surfboard... But that's why I enlisted the help of my followers, friends and colleagues, and decided on these beaches! You won't be disappointed!
Perranporth is one of my favourite beaches for a whole number of reasons – the stretching sandy beach, amazing rock arches in the cliff and “the UK's only bar on the beach”! But it's featured on this blog post for it's consistent surf and the strong surf culture that is apparent as you walk through the town.
2) Fistral Beach
Quite possibly the best known surf spots in Cornwall, Fistral can sometimes get a bit overcrowded at times. Nonetheless, it's still one of the best! It's also home to the Boardmasters surf and music festival, as well as other world class surf contests.
Situated in the stunning St Ives Bay, Gwithian is popular with surfers and wind-surfers alike. Whilst it's sister beach, Godrevy can pack a bit of a punch at times, Gwithian tends to be a little more tame.
4) Watergate Bay
You can pretty much count on Watergate whatever the conditions. Plus, there's plenty of space for everyone, which is good with the amount of other extreme sports usually going on in the water.
5) Sennen Cove
Situated in the far west of Cornwall is Sennen Cove. With nearly a mile of sandy beach, Sennen offers some big swells in places whilst it's more sheltered spots are more mellow and perfect for beginners.
