Porthtowan Surf Report

Good quality beach break, capable of providing punchy waves at most states of tide. The beach faces pretty much due west so is offshore in an easterly wind, although high cliffs provide some degree of shelter towards hightide.

When it's good here it's very good with decent barrels to be had and the ability to handle a decent sized swell. This is reflected in the standard of surfing and the beach's popularity.

At low tide the beach is much bigger and joins up with Lushingtons to the south which is reknown for it's barrelling left handers.

Probably not one of the best beaches for beginners, particularly towards high tide when it becomes a little narrow and rocky. Plus the local crew aren't the most tolerant!
