    Have you considered a compromise?

    When the waves are rolling in, definitely take the board out as good waves don’t come around often.

    I ride my mountain bike far more than I surf and enjoy it just as much if not more but when I see someone cycling by the coast I always look beyond to that perfect set in the background and think get your board out mate.

    I got back into mountain biking after a 10 year hiatus as a result of being miles from the nearest surf break. Now live in Devon and enjoy both but if I’ve got the chance to hit the beach with a decent swell running then the bike is left in the garage.

    That said I’m definitely a better mountain biker than I am a surfer…. I took up surfing far too late in life to get to a decent level but still really enjoy it which I guess is what it’s all about.

    I think there are a lot of parallels – feeling you get on a really good wave is similar to that of getting a good flow on the bike.

    Yesterday I managed to combine a surf in the morning with a ride in the afternoon – really can’t ask for more from life than that!

    Nice to do both. One of the thingsI like about surfing is that its not always available.

    Cheeky or non existent in cornwall.

    Best off living in Devon and going to the coast when it’s on.

    North devon, great waves and exmoor on your doorstep, quantocks an hour away

    I have fun trails from my front door and 5 breaks within 10 minutes drive!

    Surf when it’s on, ride when it’s not. I’m far less stress about whether there’s surf since I started riding and get my jollies that way.

    I’ll always surf if its good tho!

    I’d echo that

    Are there any decent rides in Cornwall?

    Google “The Track” in Portreath

    Just go for your usual ride and if there happens to be a nice set rolling in then ride the dunes and paddle in.

    good but short. 3 laps for decent ride. was pretty dry when i was there but I think it’d be pretty greasy in the wet.

    Been past the track many times but never ridden there. OK, so apart from there and Cardinham?

    I find it hard to have two hobbies (my wife refers to them as obsessions) at the same time. For me it would have to be one or the other. At the minute I’d happily ride past someone motor-biking, surfing, fishing, jet ski-ing etc etc and not spare a thought for any of my former hobbies/”obsessions”
