Not a great spot, but near to Newcastle so quite popular. Can often be busy with beginners but generally more than enough waves to go around.
Quite mellow, no hassles usually.

SHARKS - yes there are sharks at tynemouth. there is a water outlet up the tyne near shields that pumps out warm water. this sometimes attracts sharks to the area. Same used to apply at blyth when the power station was there.

crowds................. - This says there are no crowds at Longsands, tynemouth!Give me a break! at the weekend it's man soup, full of fuc*in millions of longboarders sitting out back and takin all the decent waves. Also gets crowded during the week, especally during the summer. Go else where if you can be bothered, unless you like crowds and poor surf!
