Centres consists of 2 waves that are only surfable with a good sized swell on a spring high tide. Firstly, breaking over the outside reef is a rarely surfed hollow peak which on it's day produces good longish rights and a respectable left. These waves then die out and reform over an inside sandbank. This peak produces short, fast and very hollow waves which break predominately right all the way to the beach. Unfortunately it generally gets messy when big.
Due to a small take-off area and the fact that it is always crowded makes surfing centres a very competitive and sometimes stressful experience...
One of Guernsey's best waves but unfortunately it is always crowded!
