Porthcurno Surf Power


Whilst Porthcurno cove may be famous for the Minnack Theatre in my books it is famous for something else; grinding, sand-dredging, top to bottom barrelling waves!

This is one of my favourite photos and very much sums up the power of the waves on the South Cornwall coast. Whilst the North coast gets more swell and generally has waves they don’t have quite the same power as on the South coast. I think it’s because the beaches are more gently sloping on the North coast.
