2nd Annual Sennen Surf Contest

A fun, family-friendly Surf Contest is returning to Sennen Cove for its second year this October, as we partner with three other local businesses to host the event.

Ben and the team are working with Sennen Surfing Centre, Sennen Surf Company Shop and Smart Surf School to plan the two-day event on 28th and 29th October, which will see surfers of all ages and abilities take to the water.

The first day of competition will end with an evening event here at the restaurant (in our new outside bar or ‘Surfers Den’), followed by a second day of competitive events and a prize ceremony.

Sennen Cove was named one of the top ten surf locations in the world by The Guardian newspaper recently, alongside destinations in Mexico, Mozambique and Hawaii.

Sennen was singled out for its consistency, lack of crowds, and its wild and unspoiled location; conditions competitors will be able to lap-up during this half-term event.

Dave Muir, Head Coach at Sennen Surfing Centre, is looking forward to marking the end of another extremely busy and rewarding summer season:

“It’s been a fantastic summer here at Sennen, with record numbers learning to surf with us or improving their skills. For example, our Ladies Surf Club on a Friday night has been hugely popular. The Surf Contest will be the perfect opportunity to celebrate what everyone has achieved.”

We can’t wait to act as the hub for this exciting event. Competitors and spectators will be able to enjoy great food and drink in relaxed surroundings as they watch the competition unfold; fringe events will include beach games, barbeques and live music.

Ben commented: “I’m really looking forward to the Surf Contest – in fact my whole family are keen to get involved! It’s the perfect opportunity for everyone to come together before winter hibernation kicks in.”

The Sennen Surf Contest is also a chance to reflect and celebrate the life of local lifeboatman and surfer Ashley Moffatt, whom the community continues to remember fondly over a decade since his fatal car accident.

Everyone from beginners through to serious surfers will have the chance to take part, with prizes in the form of cash, vouchers and surfing gear available in several categories.

There are also opportunities for brand sponsors to get involved – please contact Sennen Surfing Centre for more information.

Yoga on the Terrace Returns

We were so pleased with the popularity of our yoga classes last summer, and are thrilled to be able to deliver these gentle, life-affirming sessions once again.

Starting from the 30th July, local practitioner Julie Stone of Land’s End Yoga will be leading classes twice a week (every Saturday and Tuesday at 9am). Taking place on our terrace, Julie’s yoga sessions are an unbeatable way to start the day; exercise and meditation combined, overlooking the golden sand of Sennen Cove, with the sounds of the ocean as your workout soundtrack.

The sessions are suitable for all abilities and will run throughout the summer until 3rd September. We serve brunch from 10am, providing the perfect excuse to stay on after your workout and refuel ready for the day ahead.

Julie combines expert knowledge of Ashtanga, Iyengar and Hatha yoga styles, and also brings a compassionate approach to her practice – drawing on yoga’s therapeutic and rehabilitative benefits. Her classes at Sennen will be gentle, relaxing and inspiring, combining movement and meditation in a supportive and nurturing environment.

Julie is also offering the opportunity to book private sessions with her here on the terrace, for those who want to focus on a specific aspect of their yoga practice, or perhaps are looking for one-to-one support.

There is no need to book – simply turn up. Please wear appropriate clothing, and your own yoga mat if possible (mats will be provided for those that need them). Sessions last an hour.

Introducing: Sennen Sounds

Here at Ben Tunnicliffe Sennen Cove, we can’t think of a better way of spending a summer evening than relaxing on the terrace, with chilled DJ sets on the go, and the chance to enjoy a few drinks with friends.

So, this year we are launching Sennen Sounds; music sessions every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 29th July throughout the summer. Plus, our new outside bar – ‘Surfers Den’ – means you won’t have to stray too far from the last rays of the setting sun.

The fun starts at 9pm and continues until 1am (bar until midnight). We’re not talking Ibiza here – just feel-good music in a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere. The bar will be serving a selection of beers, ciders, wines and spirits as well as soft drinks.

After a busy day on the beach, our terrace is a stunning vantage point in which to enjoy a few sundowners (look out for pods of dolphins) and soak up the atmosphere – in one of the most spectacular coastal spots in the whole of the UK…

Sennen Ladies Surf Club – First Hand!

Running the restaurant and having a young family is challenging enough, so
I never thought that I would be willing to jump into the sea on
Friday evening to join first ladies only surfing club! Dave (owner of
Sennen Surfing Centre and Sennen Surf Shop) says that this is the UK’s  ladies
only club. Gosh! This puts everything into perspective!
Usually family (certainly my family) going to the beach means: boys and
my husband in the water and I am on the beach trying to catch up with
reading and some peace and quiet. Its no surprise to me that ladies surfing clubs are
rare! And the wet suits! What a palava!
Anyway, despite many obstacles on the day I could not avoid the moment of truth so I bravely joined the rest of keen ladies.

We had a short session on the beach with a wonderful young teacher – part of Dave’s team and off we went into the water. I never thought I would have so much fun! It was great! The sun was shining, waves were just right (very small!) and
we all had a go. I struggled for most of the session – balancing whilst laying on the board was a problem for me for a start; but after a short while I stopped worrying
and just went for any and every small wave that came. It really was fun.
I even managed to almost stand on the board! My children would be very proud of me I thought and I felt great afterwards.
We finished the session with a glass of prosecco on the terrace of the
restaurant watching a wonderful Sennen sunset! What a fabulous evening!
But I think the biggest surprise for me was to wake up the next morning – my first thought of the day – how great it would be to go surfing today! Have I caught the surfing bug already?

Sennen Ladies Surf Club – every Friday 8 pounds including a a glass of prosecco on the restaurant terrace.

Ladies Surf Club Launched

We are excited to be involved with Sennen’s first Ladies Surf Club, which will take place every Friday for the next few months.

The restaurant has teamed up with our great friends at Sennen Surfing Centre to offer an irresistible package of surf tuition, laughs and Prosecco – all within the beautiful setting of Sennen Cove.

Every week ladies of all abilities are invited to come along, enjoy an hour or so in the water with Dave Muir and his team of expert tutors, followed by coffee or Prosecco on the terrace here at the restaurant.

If you prefer you can also grab yourself a SUP board and paddle – perfect for days when waves are in short supply…

Ladies Surf Club is a great opportunity to get in the water and give it a go, or hone your skills – as well as make new friends while getting some exercise in the fresh air. If you’re lucky, you’ll also experience a stunning sunset from our terrace overlooking the golden sands.

And why not stay for dinner? Our menu features hearty post-surf options (homemade burgers, delicious fish and chips) as well as healthy options and plenty of local fish fresh from market.

Ladies Surf Club starts at 6pm every Friday, with an hour and a half in the water followed by unrestricted socialising!

We hope to see you there soon.
