8 Best Surf Universities In The World

Because life isn't all about how many hours you clocked in the library...


If you’re looking for surf in the UK, it’s likely you will naturally gravitate to Cornwall.

Falmouth University has built up a reputation as having one of the best surf communities in the country with a strong core of dedicated riders and a booming surf club.

While the south coast doesn’t have the most consistent surf, there are some decent spots which start pumping during the winter, such as the reef break at Gyllyngvase Beach.

Otherwise, popular spots like Porthtowan on the north coast is only an hour’s drive away. Plus you can’t beat a good pint of Cornish cider in one of the local pubs after a good session.

If you’re an artistic sort, Falmouth is one of the best places in the country to study graphic design and illustration, so this could be the perfect place for you.

NEAREST SPOTS: Gyllyngvase Beach (10 minute walk), Porthtowan (30 minute drive), Porthleven (35 minute drive)
