Gwithian and St Ives Bay is one of the best places to surf in Britain. The north end of the bay picks up almost every bit of swell that the Atlantic can throw at it so in the summer you can get a wave on the smallest of days.

The choice of surf spots when the swell is bigger is mind-boggling however. The beaches that Cornwall is famous for come alive with everything from wedges, reefs and pointbreaks, all just a short walk or drive away from the our training venue.

When you are tired from surfing all day head into St Ives with its many cafes and bars for a well earned drink or take a wander around the world famous Tate Gallery.

The Gwithian area of Cornwall really does have something to offer everyone.
