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