Cornwall - North Surfing

About Cornwall - North

The coast of North Cornwall is backed by large tracts of National Trust land and has been spared the development that's blighted the county further south. The area is home to the few west-facing reefs in the country and during big winter swells the deep shelter north-facing coves come into their own, turning stormy SW swells into classy beachbreak peaks. The well maintained coast path is worth the trip as the epic coastline is one of the most dramatic in the UK. Handles both small summer swells on the beaches and winter storms at some semi-secret points and reefs.
