 Cornwall West

UK

West Cornwall surfing is centred around Newquay, which has the reputation of being the longest established surf town in the UK. The extreme West Cornwall is a granitic landmass, without the extensive beaches which characterise the northern shores of Devon and Cornwall. A great area for climbers, it is less reputed for surf spots. However, certain gems exist both on the mainland and on the Scilly Isles.

Gillock area - Today was one of those day where I was on my game.  Maybe it was surfing with a group of friends again, maybe its just karma from working hard at home and at work. Tide was pushing for high, in off the steps at Gwithers and over to play o

By karma , 24-05-2007

karma - dear in the knowhow pathetic bringing politics into surfing. As for comparing the cornish revolutionary army to the IRA i suggest you take a long hard look at yourself and those around you who also consider themselves 'in the know'. Glamorizing terrorism and bringing it into a surfing web forum in this day and age! You sad little man.. Well im doneWATCH OUT FOR THOSE SUICIDE PASTIES YOU NAUGHTY ENGLISH SCOUNDRELS THE CORNISH ARE COMING:ps im cornish and you my friend are a TW#T

By In the know;-) , 20-05-2007

Bad attitude is not helpful. - This kind of attitude is only going to cause trouble. To all you north of the Tamar river surfers who share this attitude: You may not have heard of this but there is a terrorist organisation in Cornwall named the Cornish Revolutionary Army, it is backed in a similar fashion to the way the IRA was. Many of these guys surf and particularly far west. There have and are also British Army infantry soldiers involved in training them. This is not to do with surfing as such, it is a political issue, but you may come across one in the water. Drop in with an attitude and the results may not be pleasant.

By far away from cornwall , 19-04-2007

karma - bassetts cove, the reef down the coastpath between st.ives porthmeor towards sennen, the left off the headland near the castle by marazion on big swells, what about the point behind porthmeor on a big west swell or even hawkes bay...come on guys get down to cornwall and piss these cornish twats off....drop in
