Located in North Cornwall, Mawgan Porth is an alright beachie that offers up some decent sections for turns and hacks when the conditions line up. The waves here are easy to surf and break for up to 50 meters over a sand bottom. There is a good left sandbar on the south end and a good right sandbar on the northern end that can even be a bit of a wedge.
What are the best surf conditions for Mawgan Porth?
Gets good between waist high and overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here when smaller and a shortboard as the size picks up. This break is good for all levels of surfer. The surf here is somewhat fickle (4/10) and will be busy on weekends and holidays (5/10). The best winds are from the East. The best swells are from the Northwest, Southwest, and West. Works on low to mid tide on the push best.
We recommend wearing a 3/2 in the summer when water temperatures rise to 17 degrees. In the winter a 5/4 is best when water temperatures drop to 9 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
