Porthcurno - surfing

  • Porthcurno Wave
Porthcurno has some of the most photogenic waves in Cornwall. Heaving top to bottom turquoise barrels with the headland of Terryn Dinas as a backdrop. On the odd occasion it can be as good as it looks but as a rule it is a close out or too quick to make. The set up makes it popular with bodyboarders.

Only works on very low tides.
