Surfing Constantine

A wonderful golden stretch of sand reaching to Trevose head.  A great surfing beach picking up what ever mother nature’s waves are out in the Atlantic.  Caution must be taken when the surf conditions are rough, however a good summer option particularly when the swell is small.

Surf Spot Quality

Wave
A good quality beach break with peaks up and down the  beach, however dependent upon sand banks at any given time as these change frequently due to its exposure to the prevailing swell.  Great beginner and intermediate wave when the swell is small, however in larger conditions wave becomes powerful with strong rip currents and is best suited to experts only.

Swell
picks up any south west, or west swells

Wind
best wind from the east, south east and north east.

Tide
best tides mid to high tide either on the drop or on the push.  Waves generally disappear  on very high tides.

Crowd
Crowded particularly in summer.

Location
Constantine Bay is located off the B3276 coast road between Newquay and Padstow.  Approx 3 miles south of Padstow or 10 miles north of Newquay.  Follows signs from St Merryn.  Post code PL28 8JJ
