Perranporth offers a fantastic beach break providing a number of uncrowded peaks which work well at most tides. The water is clear and the scenery here is second to none. The Northern end of Perranporth Beach (Penhale Sands) gives a wonderful sense of being miles from anywhere. It's wild and it's beautiful and when the conditions are right... provides some of the best surf in the UK!
If you are just embarking upon your surfing journey, there are a number of surf schools in Perranporth that will be pleased to show you the ropes in a safe and professional environment. Please see our activities page for further information on local surf schools.
Also, why not pop into Perranporth Tourist Information centre and pick up your Perranporth Guide? You'll find discount vouchers here for surf lessons with some of the local schools.
If you are an experienced surfer and just need to hire equipment in order to get out there, one of the many surf shops along Perranporth High Street will be more than happy to help.
Please be aware that surfing is only recommended in the life guarded area between the black and white flags. Further information regarding safety in the water is available on our Beach Safety page.
