Dangers

- Localism

 Additional Information

Decent peaks when the banks are in place and the SE isn't howling. Water freezing in summer, but not many wear hoods - not really cool enough!! Gets very crowded most weekends, as this is the nursery for most young surfers in the area. Few locals, who think they're heavy, but not really - just don't drop in or you'll have a bunch of sun-bleached, whippersnappers whining in you ear.

Atmosphere

There are three main peaks at this break. The first peak, on the right hand side, near the rocks (looking out to sea) is known as the The Gat (The Hole). It can get epic when the swell direction and banks are just right, giving riders an intense, wedging take off that mutates into a thick, round barrel. This is where the locals sit when it's good. Can get impossibly crowded, especially with bodyboarders. Central peak, which can also get good, and a left o nthe far side that sometimes breaks, giving relatively short rides.

General

It's OK, have had it very good, but can be fickle. Can't handle a big swell - when it's maxing out the locals can be found at a nearby, predominately gay, nudist beach. Although there seems to be a fair proportion of locals at Sandy Bay even when Llandudno is cranking - mmm I wonder why?

locals need some pleasure - i really cant believe how childish and selfish the locals are!!!! if u cant take an apology and a smile after somebody makes a mistake then u should stay at home! why should people going out there over respecting people that they dont no!!! maybe the locals just arent getting enough pleaure from there partners cos there dicks are too small from the cold water!!!!! get a life, stop being so stupid
