A Timeline of Surf

Cornwall's Newest Station


Surf Radio was founded as the brainchild of two Exeter University students with a love of podcasting after realising that Exeter and Falmouth on Cornwall Campuses didn't have any outlets for audio media creation.

In March 2019, they set up the new FXU Radio Station called "Falifornia",

before renaming to "Surf Radio" and broadcasting from the Soundhouse,  Falmouth University's state-of-the-art broadcasting studio on Woodlane Campus.

A Studio of Our Own


In​ 2021, Surf Radio launched its own dedicated studio in Penryn Campus' Tremough House. This enabled us to record more shows and create a bigger variety of content, to suit our diverse audience across Cornwall. This also allowed our members to get additional experience with live broadcasting to further improve the quality of our shows!

Moving and Improving


In​ 2022, Surf Radio moved, once again, to our current studio located at the top of the Exchange Building on Penryn Campus. Since then, we've continued to make improvements to the studio and station to open Surf up to as many incredible opportunities as we can! By the end of 2023, we hope to have upgraded our computer systems to the latest hardware and software and in March 2024, we will be celebrating our 5th anniversary!
