Week crowdFew surfers
Normal if slightly more powerful beach break. There can be a righthander around the corner at low tide, This is a reef and can get good.
Quite an odd dark little cove. Very strange rock formations with vertical strata and arches. Undeveloped which adds to a prehistoric feel. Very high hills each side which may hinder your thoughts of exploration.
at high tide the break is onto rocks and a rock section completely breaks it up making it VERY dangerous.. at low tide you can see all the beaches along bude down to widemouth and black rock. normally only small break and not reallyt worth it given the talent that is around it.
Interesting view from the water of military antennae (goon hilly). Go for a walk with your board north and see what you can find........(Not advisable for beginners)

Duckpool - just thought i would say how much i appreciate this break, it is mellow, friendly attitude nice break and it has a nice feel to the place, not full of mindless, disrespective kooks, although surfing it this weekend found that the place has become rather quite popular with tourists, especially as sandymouth is near and now is getting crowded!!!! still love this place, want it to stay as it is and not become a typical resort for kooks!!!

IG - Glad to hear it mate... can't work out who you are, but positively definitly the right attitude. Not like any of us have any sort of rights to the place, but when you've grown up on it, I don't know, it just hurts when others don't have any sort of respect for the place or people. This counts for anywhere, really. And J.... haven't been to the Bullers for ages mate. Demi Moore drinkin in there? Back down the road from you again... lets drink there some.
