The United Kingdom is home to a large variety of consistent waves. From the slabbing reefbreaks in Ireland and Scotland to the fun, punchy beach breaks in Cornwall, Wales and Devon. The options are endless if you are wiling to explore.
Most of the year there is consistent swell around the UK however, during the winter months (December– March) the waves kick up a storm and can be pretty enjoyable for those cold water enthusiasts. Summer (June – September) tends to be small, warm, fun and consistent. There has even been times where the brave have managed to ditched the wetsuit for a session. Spring and Autumn (April & May/ October/November) are the most favourable months as a surfer in the Northern Hemisphere, the UK is no exception. You can expect low crowds, good weather and consistent, powerful swell.
Fistral Beach – Fun and a very consistent beach break that can deliver great rides on any tide for all surfers. The northern end has been known to deliver some amazing barrels on the spring low tide.Towan & Great Western – Perfectly Sheltered – the go to spot when the storms roll in for guaranteed clean lines.
Watergate Bay – Big open stretched of beach, collects a bit more swell than Fistral so can get a few more people in the summer months. It also has a fun peaky wedge up the north end of the beach.
