Porthleven Surfer Gets a Barrel

Believe it or not there's more to surfing in Cornwall than Newquay and Fistral Beach. Lots more...

Cornwall's location, jutting straight out into the Atlantic Ocean, makes it a magnet for swell. Combine this with its milder climate and a plethora of excellent beaches and you have the UK's premier surf destination. Until very recently Cornwall was pretty much unchallenged by anywhere in the British Isles for the quality of surfers it has produced over the years. This is gradually changing as spots in the North East, Northern Ireland, South Wales and Scotland gain in reputation, but it is hard to imagine any of these places have the unique combination that makes Cornwall the surf capitol of the UK.

To further cement the county's reputation it is the location for one of the biggest pro-surf competitions in Europe. The Fistral Boardmasters (as it is currently known) has been running under various names for over 10 years, attracting some of the biggest names in the surfing world.
