 Additional Information

The right: Take off on the peak, blow up on the open wall, then pull in on the inside for one of Cornwalls best barells. Make sure you kick out before the ledge (sucks dry when the bay is emptying).
The left: Carve up the walls before it slacks of. Still a good wave though.
Practice late drops and learn how to fall off in the barrel! Buy a ding repair manual

Atmosphere

This spot is little known, but should be shared. Locals are cool as long as respect is given. The settings are beautiful and you will be hard pressed to have a bad surf when its on! Go forth, seek and ye shall find. But please, just turn up in a positive, friendly frame of mind! Found this spot when doing the coastal path a couple of years ago. Only three people surf the spot regularly (including me), is definatly worth the effort but is difficult to find. Be cool, there's enough waves for everyone!

not real - go surf the wedge in delabole slate quarry. better setup and more consistent.

Doesn't exist - Went exploring there today at low tide, there was a fair bit of swell running. Unless you are talking about a fickle super low tide fat cliff thing, it doesn't exist. Everything near grower rock is stuck up loads from deep water. Impossible access. I reckon that there might be a shitty wave into boscastle harbour mouth. You would need horse bollocks and a big swell.

thanks - Thanks 4 downgrading the wave quality rating to a more realistic fun wave.Ps: best waves are hidden in the south china sea, still undescovered! Seek and you shall find
