Artist's Description

“Fistral Beach is best known for surfing. Its west-facing aspect exposes it to Atlantic swells ensuring consistent waves suitable for surfing. The beach is the venue for major international surfing competitions and a competition suite for judges and competitors has been built at North Fistral along with a surf museum.

The British Surfing Association, Newquay Surf Life Saving Club and the Newquay Boardrider Club are all based at Fistral Beach.

The Cribbar, a reef at the north end of the beach, causes waves to break when the swell is high. It is considered to be Cornwall’s premier “big wave” location with wave faces as high as 40 feet (12 m).[citation needed]

On 21 September 2006 Fistral Beach hosted the British Surfing Association’s invitational Gold Rush Big Wave Competition.[citation needed] During the competition the surf was over 8 feet (2.4 m) high because of the effect of Hurricane Gordon.[citation needed] The winner was 28-year-old Scott Eastwood of the Channel Islands who scored a perfect 10 in the final."
