You can count on your hands the people that have surfed this wave over the years.Only works 2hrs ethier side of spring lowtides.You can see the wave from the main carpark @perelle .If the wave isn't breaking outside the rock that is by the peak then don't bother with the paddle.Only surf it when you can see a good swell is running.The wave comes in as a hollow peak which barrels on take of past a big rock and then fattens out .Best to surf it yourself.Can handle a sw wind as it faces n.
never anyone out and people seem to be blind to this wave that breaks when a lot of places are onshore/crosshore.A good place to get a barrel on take of.
a brilliant wave if it's low tide .What the rock by the take of.

GUERNSEY - i live in guernsey- and surf, its a little disapointing most of the time, the big swell is in the winter - yet the sea is very damn cold - worth going in for tho. In the summer, you need to time the tides, its best on a rising tide, or just after high tide. The waves are smaller than most, but perfect for all boards, gentle waves, with the ability for you to push yourself. And for the more daring, we have reefs that you get awesome surf on, just might wreck yourself or your board - as ive snapped mine out there.definitely worth a visit , i say, yet the surf is not reliable enough to come just for it. but the island is very beautiful, and the beach life is awesome.

mugger - Maybe you expect waves in the c.i when the rest of the atlantic is flat or damn near it.I haven't even botherd checking for swell.Most people tend to go to indo to get their waves not the c.i.Come over and play when their's a solid swell running ,no then again p.off
