Surfing in Cornwall
Cornwall is located on the southwest coast of England and a big part of the county’s land is part of a National Trust that held back the development and preserved this area. This is probably the best surfing area in the country since Cornwall has a few magical west-facing reefs and also some sheltered coves that come alive during big SW winter swells creating epic beach breaks. The coastline scenery is unique and stunning and it’s considered as one of the most beautiful places in the UK. Cornwall has good exposure for small summer swells on the beach breaks and during heavy winter storms there are always options in one of the many protected points and reef breaks. The west part of the county is very popular and attracts most of the tourists and surfers in the area. The mild climate and the reliable waves brings lots of people to the area especially during the summer vacations. If you are planning to surf in England you must plan a stop at Cornwall for sure.
