Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
The polar opposite to the dark and moody north of the county, West Cornwall may as well be called Summer County. With its mild climate and consistent waves itÕs the most popular surfer and tourist destination in the whole country, which means one thing for the summer months - crowds. Outside of the summer months clean W/SW swells are readily tackled by keen local crews and clued in travellers. The area is generally a small wave destination, once the swell is double overhead there are very few spots, with the exception of the Cribber, that can handle it.
