WATERSPORTS IN NORTH CORNWALL.
North Cornwall's secluded coves, sandy beaches
and breathtaking cliffs provide a dramatic backdrop for watersports
on the apron of the Atlantic. And it's easy to tap into the thrills:
just check the tide, follow the lifeguards' advice, choose from
boogie-boards to surf skis and splash your way into the centre
of the action. If you've never had a crack at surfing, you've
come to the right place.
The wide expanse of golden sand at Polzeath offers
the perfect starting point to conquer the Atlantic rollers, with
tuition and board hire on hand. There are surf schools and equipment
for hire at Bude, Constantine and Harlyn Bay too.
But England's premier Atlantic coastline is not
the only way to get closer to the water in North Cornwall. You'll
find fine fishing, sheltered sailing and wonderful windsurfing
at the Tamar Lakes and, on the Bude Canal, relaxing rowing.
the Camel Estuary you can really push the boat out in style, choosing
from dinghy sailing, windsurfing or even water-skiing. Anglers
fall in love with North Cornwall, hook,
line and sinker.
Not surprising really, when there's no close season
in Cornwall and you can choose from rock and beach fishing, river
game on the Camel, or stillwater trout at Crowdy Reservoir and
Sea fishing trips cast off from Boscastle, Padstow,
Rock and Port Isaac, where you can experience the thrill of pulling
into a Cornish harbour with fresh mackerel for your supper.
