Matt's Surf Lodge located in Newquay which is world famous for its surf and natural environment. Hosting the Boardmasters (The Formula 1 of the professional surfing world) and many surf music festivals, Skate and Kite surfing events have added to Newquays boardsports culture.

Below is basic information and some pictures of Newquay's surrounding coast and surf.

Fistral Beach

The UK's most famous surfing beach and a stage for many surfing events to include the WQS 5 star Boardmasters event every summer. Works on all tides and if there is swell on the North Cornish coast Fistral will pick it up. North and south Fistral offer varying conditions.

The Town Beaches

(Towan, Great Western, Tolcarne and Lusty Glaze)

Situated just below Newquay Town and offers varying degrees of shelter from unfavourable conditions. All beaches link up at low tide and it tends to get bigger towards the north. In stormy weather when much of the North Coast is blown out Newquay Bay can offer fast hollow waves.
Porth Beach - Does not work that often but worth a look if there is plenty of swell and an offshore wind.

Crantock Beach

This is an ambitious walk from Matt's surf Lodge. A scenic beach which lies at the mouth of the River Gannel, best at low tide but can offer great waves at all tides.

The following popular Cornish surfing spots are all situated within 20 minutes drive from Matt's Surf Lodge and all offer seasonal lifeguarding.

Holywell Bay

Low-mid, a good bet for a quiet surf. Can be deceivingly powerful with a good swell.

Perran Sands/ Perranporth

Two miles of beach offering many opportunities at all tides and can hold big swells. The further you walk up the beach the quieter and more exposed it tends to be.

Watergate Bay

A renowned longboard spot, also popular with paddle boarders and kite surfers. Picks up the swell with many peaks at particularly low tide.

Mawgan Porth

A low to mid tide spot offering surprisingly powerful and sometimes hollow waves, even in smaller swells. Lefts and rights break at each end of the beach
