The great thing about surf hire shops in Cornwall (and particularly Newquay) is that few of them stop at just hiring you what you need. Many of the hire outlets are also schools, so if you want to get surfing with some lessons you’ll be able to select everything you need to get started before starting your lesson. Many of them are also shops for those who need to pick up some new equipment before their surfing break really starts, and they’re nearly all run by guys who’s surfed more waves than most of us have had hot dinners.
Sunset Surf Hire in Newquay has been open since 1988, and it’s just moments from the surfing Mecca that’s Fistral Beach.

They stock surfboards, wetsuits and accessories for beginners, intermediate surfers and of course the experienced – and there’s a size for every age.
