Top three spots in Kernow:
  1. Fistral, Newquay. Fun waves out the front everyday.
  2. Porthleven. Secret spot, ha, ha. Best wave we have but only gets good once in a blue moon. Can get like backdoor on rarest occasion.
  3. Secret left hand point. Really sick down the line wave that holds a good size. Many know of it but still not good to name.
Top three pubs in Newquay:
  1. Red Lion, my local bar. Even though I don’t go out for a drink very often, I love going to the Red and playing pool with the boys.
  2. Belusis, where everyone goes in between the pub and going to Chy.
  3. Chy, night club where all the locals go. Pretty fun but gets boring after a while.
