Nice fun waves, beautiful views, however it suffers from a gaying influence from lots of Longboarders.

Always had fun here except when the sewage overspilled from Gwithian village last year, good surf, plenty of room, usually very clean, unlike this web page.

Gwithian is not in st,ives because i live in st ive but it can be pretty sweet when it is working.
Made by : Jody Hartley

Gwithian and Godrevy hold some class waves, I've always had a good session at godrevy even when its onshore, super consistent banks create fun waves in most conditions unless its blowin a gale. Why don't you lot just chill out!! I suspect the people sayin its crap are either goons that can't surf or locals tryin to keep people away, all I say is grow up whichever you are. Ps don't be bringin that attitude up north, it ain't welcome. Peace!
