What's a week away in Cornwall without a sampling of the local delights?
Fistral Beach can be split between North and South Fistral. North Fistral works best at all tides when big swells are coming in. On low tide, some cracking barrels and peaks are produced. Mainly a right hander with submerged rocks and rips for lefts during high tide. It''s good for beginners although it can get a little crowded in summer. South Fistral usually breaks left and is best from mid to high tide. The best swell direction is west southwest and it's suitable for beginners although watch for dangerous rips.
