Located in Western Cornwall, England, St. Agnes is a quality beachie that offers up some powerful peaks good for laying down some meaty hacks and carves. The waves here are challenging and break for up to 50 meters over a rock and sand bottom. Can be a little localised.
What are the best surf conditions for St. Agnes?
Gets good between waist high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here when smaller and a shortboard then step up as the size picks up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer when smaller but beginners should steer clear when it gets bigger. The surf here is somewhat consistent (5/10) and will be crowded with a bit of an offputting vibe at times (8/10). The best winds are from the South. The best swells are from the Northwest, Southwest, and West. Works on a mid-tide 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.
