Surfing St Ives Cornwall

Surfing In St Ives Cornwall

Whether you are a dab hand at surfing or you have never tried it before, St Ives is a good place to surf.

Porthmeor Beach is our best surf beach with good waves most of the year round. It does occasionally go as flat as a pancake in the Summertime, but this is fairly unusual. There is usually decent surf, sometimes fantastic surf!

Porthmeor Beach is the home to the St Ives Surf School. This is an excellent place to go to hire equipment or book lessons. They take people of all ages and abillities, providing you can swim. However, children under 8 will need a parent or guardian with them in the water. Click here to find out more about them >>

If you want an alternative beach to surf on, it is best to go round the bay to Gwithian or Godrevy as these beaches get really good surf.

Please do remember to always surf between the flags and listen to the lifeguards. There are lots of currents and rips, especially at the turn of the tide. We don't recommend you surf if there isn't a lifeguard on duty. Plenty of people do, but these are usually locals or surfers with a lot of experience.
