Another low-tide spot between Polzeath and Daymer, again only surfable on the lowest of tides, otherwise the beach is quickly replaced by a sheer cliff face.Walk around the corner from Polzeath or get fit and paddle around from Polzeath. It will take you about 20 minutes but its worth it.

Atmosphere

This is only a summer wave as it turns any swell into a death wave. The wave breaks right on the shore onto a pebble beach. Some good barrels if you're brave and desperate.

General

When summer waves start to get you down, this is the place to be. It's normally a once surf a year sort of place, cos your wetty and board gets trashed by the stones, and everyone normally gets injured.

funny - ok i find dis stuf funny, the fact that ur arguing about it is Quite funny, im pritty sure ur right the mane reason for it being called death bay is due to the rocks can b a bit skechy but im not 100% sure, this has never been a secret spot every local no's were it is and no u surfs up kids did not descover it its been surfed for years and years as janimal said, u lot are the only ones dat surf there as no one can realy be botherd with it, we come over and tell u to move as we cant always see u there wich can be dangours if u get in trouble. nd dnt go claming it as urs as u lot are a pain and almost all of the locals find u annoying already dnt go giving them morwe reson to h8 u, nd if this turns out to be my litle bro i will give u wot for ok!!!!

- I surfed here about 15 years ago and it was called Death bay then so I'm not sure about all that cliff jumping business.I always thought it was called death bay cause of the rocks. Noth that it's a particularly deadly spot. Can have it's day though.
