 Cornwall North

UK

North Cornwall surfing is centred around Bude, which has some excelent breaks. However, as with most areas, some of the best spots are found outside of this limited region. North Cornwall has reefs, beaches and point-breaks providing a surprising variety of surfing. The beach breaks are very affected by the tides, and at weekends the line-ups can get very crowded.

Barras nose hardly ever breaks and when it does its dangerous. "B*tches" and "Devils Palace" are the same place, about 1/4 mile up the coast and around the corner from bossiney, it is deep water and never breaks. Crosstown is a part of sandymouth, Dunsmouth "rivermouth" is weeny and doesn't effect the surf, it is also a part of sandymouth beach, Gullies "gullastem" is rocky and almost impossible access. Hippa rock is always stuck out of the water. Granted, a wave breaks onto it, or surges onto it but it aint ridable. Marsland right is deep water and doesn't break. Allthough you might get a beachbreak at spring low tide. How you get down there is anyones guess. Pengold is the same place as Rusey beach and has dodgy access, a reef which is superdangerous and unridable. Doesn't really qualify as a break. the beach never gets anything because it is either a cliff/shore dump or the reef is breaking which you can't surf. Stanbury is a fat beachbreak and the righthander is only short because the first section closes out and the main section also usually shuts down as the swell is Never in the right direction for it to break well. Also the access is so dodgy at high tide when it is likely to break, you need a death wish to surf it. The box is a legend and allthough real, noone ever surfs it because it is just a scary tube with a fat shoulder. Hardly anyone has the balls. Tremoutha Haven never gets ridden. The big left is at crackington. The left at tremoutha (inner cam point) hardly ever breaks and when it does, everyone will be surfing millook. It is a wave which is there but not the one in the description. Yeol mouth is a beyond weeny cove and allthough it does have a right and left wave, there are 400ft cliffs which prevent access. Nearest access is at higher sharpnose point which is a LONG paddle. Bring a boat. It all boils down to this, between bude and hartland point, all the waves are low tide beachies and the reefs are not doable because off dodgy cliff access. The reef at marsland and spekes are the only 2 real accessible options. You will catch the odd wave if you go looking but you will have to get down the cliffs to find out.
