Surftrackmind, Accomodation in cornwall near the good bits…
I leant to surf camping here
Its a walk through the dunes to the beach. Ideally you’ll rent a board for the whole trip. No one beach will cover all conditions possible but this worked well for us. We could walk to a pub as well
There are surf schools everywherePosted 4 years agojam boSubscriber
Quality of waves doesn’t matter much when your first starting out. Anywhere flat and sandy will do. Pick somewhere that isn’t a hole like Newquay and you’ll do alright.
North coast is less likely to go flat in summer than south.
I’ve just had a week in sennen which was pretty nice. If its flat there then everywhere is.Posted 4 years ago
North Coast is where its at…
I live near Bude and used to work here outdoor adventure
Brilliant bunch of guys to learn with, great beach and good kit available.
I also live next to this beach and another friend runs this surf school, equally as good and a very very nice quiet beach sandymouth
Also my house, 1.5 miles from the beach is available to rent ALL summer (holiday let).
New build, green oak frame, eco house (hate that term but it does describe it well) with massive garden, surrounded by countryside and sea views… What more could you want 😉
Let me know if you want any info on any of the above, or i could point you in the right direction of some nice campsites. If you book lessons with OA or a similar company, try coasteering for a day too, bloody ace funPosted 4 years ago
IIRC Gwenver the next cove to Sennen has a camp site on top of the cliff over looking the beach.
It also picks up more swell than Sennen, as said if it’s flat there it’s flatter everywhere else.
Croyde’s ok if you enjoy being ripped off, Saunton’s no better but the beach has plenty of peaks along it for beginners.
Completely different area – Llangennith on the Gower has camping and surf schools on the beach.Posted 4 years agoampthillSubscriber
If you like surfing with 1 million other people and spending the day looking for somewhere to park amongst the badly pimped T4’s hmmmmm croyde
No don’t go to Croyde or Newquay in the summer to learn to surf
At Gwythian I’ve taught my kids to surf with no one near us in the water. It felt safe and fun. At Croyde it would be a huge crush and not feel safe and fun. Winter is of course a different matterPosted 4 years ago
