Porthleven Surf Report

Porthleven is home to probably Englands premier surf break.

I can remember a long time ago whilst in Australia, a local raving about it and saying how he lodged down there just to surf it.

The wave to the right hand of the harbour is formed over rock, blasted over 100 years ago when opening up the harbour entrance. Righthanders are more popular with them breaking into the channel, but lefts are also available. There is also a wave in front of and to the left of the pier popular with bodyboarders. Best conditions are clean SW swell with NE breezes offshore.

Be aware that Porthleven is a shallow reef break and for advanced surfers only. When its on, theres always a crowd, including a mixture of very good surfers and locals alike. If you do go be prepared to:

  • show respect to the locals
  • dont drop in
  • park considerately

As the size increases over 6ft, the crowds may start to thin a bit, but you better know what you're doing ...

Its been a cracking start to the year for waves here on the South Coast with waves not too dissimilar to these below:

If you get a NW or W wind, you'll likely see the occasional kite surfer or windsurfer out, such as this image below (I'm sure there is a windsurfer in the background or was out that day)

Porthleven surf report & forecast brought to you by the met office and magic seaweed. For eyeball reports, please visit our salinated surf report page. Please rememebr that our salinated eyeball reports are taken at beaches further up the coast of South Cornwall, so its likely that Porthleven will be a foot or two larger, especially taking into account the reef concentrating the waves energy.

Below is the latest Met Office forecast for Helston, about 4 miles away from Porthleven.
