 Información adicional

Park your car wherever you can find space. The break is right in the town.
Towan needs a huge swell to wrap around the headland, and is usually most consistent in winter. The waves are biggest around low tide and smallest at high tide.

At low tide the beach joins up with Great Western, Tolcarne and Lusty Glaze. The waves are bigger the further north you go. The only problem is that it is the longest closeout in the world. Most waves close out at low tide all the way from Towan to Lusty Glaze, with only the occasional peeler. It is always mega crowded though. If it is big enough there will be a decent left behind the harbour.

Mid tide is best giving peeling lefts and rights and the occasional closeout. There is a good left off the harbour wall which gets very crowded with locals.

High tide is usually smallest and suffers from back wash off the breakwall and side wash from the harbour and cliffs.

Ambiente

Towan is nearly always mega crowded. Most Newquay groms learn to surf here and if the swell is huge with a westerly wind this can be the only place on the North coast that receives any shelter.

The atmosphere in the water can be bad as agro Newquay "locals" think they have the right to snake and drop-in on anyone.

General

It does occasionally get very good when the sandbanks are right. Most of the time though, it is a horrendous, crowded closeout.

Unless it is big try Great Western or Tolcarne at mid-tide.

Novice - Hi anonymous,i have just started surfing, and I don't want to be thought of as a coward. It is sooooo uncool! Next time you go surfing at a non-cowards break, take me with you. I need to shake this "coward" label that I have been branded with, and going surfing with the big boys would certainly do that, even though my ability would probably not match the conditions, and I might get into difficulties, and I might get in your way a lot. You could turn all the cowards into non-cowards and then we could all surf with you at the big-boys' spots. Wouldn't that be smashing Anonymous, all those people with no ability surfing all your favourite spots. Maybe it is a good thing that there are spots where novices can learn and improve and stay away from the more experienced or "macho" surfers like you.

Errores, opiniones.
