South-West England


South-West England (especially Cornwall and Devon) is well worth a surf trip. If you can bear the cold (the water dosn't go below 10C though) , you gonna have the pleasure of superb, consistent, uncrowded (not true for Newquay) waves during late autumn, winter and spring, very often combined with a breathtaking landscape. Another important advantage of South-West England is, that a lot of different spots catching very different swell directions are within a short range. For example you can make it from Praa Sands (south coast) to Gwithian (north coast) within half an hour of driving. During summertime, the waves are said to become unconsistent and crowded
