Perranuthnoe - surfing

  • Perranuthnoe Surf
Perranuthnoe takes quite specific conditions to work but can be good. When it is, it tends to be one of the only surfable beaches for miles around so can get a little busy.

To work Perranuthnoe requires a good sized south coast swell and at least some north in the wind. Always smaller than nearby Praa Sands it is also a little less punchy, although it can be on its day.

You'll need to get here on a lower tide as the beach disappears as the tide comes in.
