Surfing in Newquay, Cornwall – is it any good?


There are plenty of surf camps, surfers, surfer wannabes, surf shops and surf schools in Newquay, but is the surf in the little Cornish town any good? It’s just weak waves and fat closeouts isn’t it?
Well no actually, it isn’t and we think it deserves the self proclaimed Surf City of the UK status. Granted, the crazy storms over the Winter smashed the coastline to pieces but it also created some fun new sand banks and waves.
Actions speak louder than words so we’ll let this collection of shots from Luke Gartside taken a just stones throw away from the towns top hedonistic hotspots.

  1. Hey, my name is Alexander. I from Russia.
    I would stay and try to surf in Newquay 3-4 days under NewYear 2019))
    Could you tell me please, how many people visit NewQuay (and Cornwall generally) for surfing ?
    Does the school work for rent stuff in December? What is the water temperature on the coast? Do you plan the party in Santa suit on the coast ?))
    Many thanks.
