Located in Western Cornwall, England, Gwynver is a quality beach break, local swell magnet, that puts out some good sections for manoeuvres when the conditions line up. The waves here are not easy to surf and break for up to 50 meters over a sand bottom. Look for a right point to the North end of the bay, it is fickle but good. If it isn’t breaking here it won’t be breaking on the rest of the coast.
What are the best surf conditions for Gwynver?
Gets good between waist high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here when smaller and a shortboard as the size picks up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here is consistent (7/10) and can get busy at times (5/10). The best winds are from the East. The best swells are from the Northwest, South, Southwest, and West. Works on low to mid tides 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.
