SURFING HOLIDAYS FISTRAL BEACH

Cornish Wave is based on Fore street in the heart of Newquay, and we’re lucky enough to have some of the best surfing beaches in Cornwall right on our door step. For surfing holidays in Cornwall Fistral beach is definitely a beach to check out. After all it's dubbed the Home of British surfing! Depending on the surf conditions, it is suitable for any level of surfer from beginner through to intermediate and more advanced surfers. It is also relatively consistent for surfers no matter the tide with more advanced surfers likely preferring the lower tides with steeper, faster waves. For beginners, learning to surf on Fistral Beach is perfect. Around one hour after high tide and two hours before low tide the waves are perfect for beginners with regular white-water waves rolling to shore as you master the basics.

SWELL SEASON
TIME OF YEAR

The best time to surf in Cornwall is during the spring & autumn months (April, May June & September, October November), when the swells are bigger and more consistent. However, the water temperature can be cold, so you'll need to be prepared to wear a 4/3mm wetsuit, and possibly a hood, boots, and gloves in the colder months. If you're a beginner, you may want to consider visiting during the summer months, when the waves are smaller and the water temperature is much warmer.

SURF CONDITIONS

Cornwall has a variety of surfing beaches to suit all levels of experience, from beginner-friendly beaches to more challenging breaks. When choosing a beach to surf at, it's important to consider your skill level, the time of year, and the current swell conditions. You can find surf reports and forecasts online or at local surf shops. More often than not, a locals tip for where to surf is the best advice.

EQUIPMENT

 If you're hiring surf equipment, it can be a good idea to book in advance where possible. In the shoulder seasons not all the surf hire shops are open and in the busier months they can be busy or not have the surf equipment you had in mind in stock. Many surf hire shops offer day rental and weekly surf rentals.

SURF LESSONS

If you're a beginner, it's a good idea to take some surf lessons with a surf school from a qualified instructor. This will help you learn the basics of surfing safely and effectively. This is often a really fun way to get your surfing holiday in Cornwall off to a good start and gives you confidence to get surfing with purpose in your own time.

ACCOMMODATION

There's a wide range of accommodation available in Cornwall, from campsites and hostels to luxury hotels and self-catering cottages. When choosing your accommodation, consider your budget and proximity to the beaches or town you want to surf at. Cornwall can be a great destination for a surfing road trip, with places such as Sennen Cove or the more remote beaches on the North coast of Cornwall all easily reachable by car.

GOOD TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO....

  • Check the tide tables: The tide can have a big impact on the surf conditions, so it's important to check the tide tables before you go surfing. You can find tide tables online or at local surf shops. Be mindful that many beaches are cut off at high tide so understanding what the tide is doing before you go surfing is very important. 
  • Be aware of the rips: Rips are currents that can carry you out to sea. If you're caught in a rip, don't panic. Swim parallel to the shore until you're out of the current, and then swim back to shore. You can read more about surf safety on our page here. 
  • Surf with a buddy: It's always a good idea to surf with a buddy, especially if you're a beginner or surfing at a challenging beach. Make sure you know where you are within the beach and can easily get back to the shore.
