Surfing Cornwall...

« on: March 30 2009 13:03:00 »

Thinking about surfing in Cornwall, this summer.
I`m Swedish and the options are Portugal, France or England.
I´ve been to Portugal a couple of times, good surf but booring country.
That´s why I´m thinking about Cornwall! But, what are the waves like during july? temperature in air and water. can U camp close to the beach?

Thank ful for answers!

Surfing cornwall will be the most expensive out of all 3! i would go to France, it will be fairly busy but no busier than cornwall. Also you can expect nicer weather! Most campsites in cornwall will rip you off and be full of families and holidaymakers!

TY for your answer!

I´ve heard it´s expensive, but campsites to?

Lots of families during summer? where do surfers stay?

Any other suggestions about surfing England or Great Britain?

No worries, you can find the odd campsite which will be cheaper, youll want to head for the younger people orientated ones. North devon is nicer i think. Less crowd, and cheaper sites. Most surfers use the sites but try not to if possible. It is hard to camp if your not on a site, the police will turn up haha, you can sleep in a car which i have done many times in north devon but in hight of the season you will get woken in the night by the police and asked to move on. Again i reckon you should go to france! im leaveing 1st of june for 2 months in hossegor region, better waves, weather and food than the UK. : )
