Surfing in Cornwall has never been so popular. Each year tens of thousands of people take to the waves for the first time and many are hooked for life. You're never too young or to old to learn to surf in Cornwall. And even though the sea is quite cold, the latest wetsuit technology means you can stay warm while surfing in Cornwall at any time of year. Winter is actually the best time for surfing in Cornwall with waves consistently much bigger and much more powerful. But summer is the perfect time to learn with small mellow waves and warmer temperatures. September and early October are our favourite months for surfing in Cornwall because we start to receive hurricane swells from across the Atlantic, and the sea is still very mild after a long summer.
