What makes Newquay the Surf Capital?

Part of what makes Newquay one of the best surfing destinations in the UK is its geography. The town is surrounded by beaches! Fistral beach is the area’s main West facing beach that draws in the predominant west swells and winds, but many other surf spots in the area serve up some cracking Cornish waves too!

But as all us Brits know, the weather here in the UK is anything but predictable. Often these beaches are too exposed to the swell and high winds hailing form the West. Newquay’s popular bay is sheltered from these winds and can often produce fun, surfable waves when many other beaches in the area offer no protection.
