Pirate FM has learnt Cornwall could get the UK's first surf reserve.

They already exist in Australia and California.

The idea is to protect the sea and coast from development or pollution.

The council is promising to consider it.

Julian German is from County Hall: "A lot of people coming down to Cornwall want to enjoy the beaches, want to get out and about and enjoy our fantastic natural environment so it's very important that we protect that for the future.

"There's going to be arguments and debates about what's appropriate and what isn't. We'll need to look at it on a case by case basis. We'll need to look at the significance of different beaches, different wave spots and how important they are."
