The missus wants to learn to surf...« on: August 17 2009 23:08:00 »
... but I'm a beginner too .... so looking for advice as to where to go, where to stay - and a good surf school that will get us both going quickly!
Timing: first week September. Location: we're thinking Cornwall.... but happy to fly somewhere warmer (don't want her to be put off by the cold... ok, or me then) - say within 6-8hrs....
.... any recommendations or is the UK a good bet?
Thank you in advance.

UK is a great place to surf, North cornwall or North Devon. If you head down to Cornwall then you have some lovely beaches which can generally be quite quiet and some nice surfschools if you want to take a lesson or rent gear for the day. I learnt to surf at Harlyn, and there are a couple beaches around there which you can check depending on the wind and swell direction (ask a local for the best spot when you're down there) . . If you head to Devon then Saunton is a good spot with Woolacoombe close by too. But I'd recommend North coast if anything and well warmth wise surfing the Uk is generally quite cold but I can't really help with surf spots abroad, hopefully someone else might post something :)
Enjoy the water . . :D
