 Additional Information

Usually good banks at all stages of the tide. As it is a beach break the banks shift around a bit, so sometimes it is good at low tide on the right or mid tide in the middle.

There is usually a good bank at on the right hand side from low-mid tide which gets crowded with locals. Gets good when it is big giving long, walled up rights, it doesn't really max out, it is just a bitch of a paddle. More mellow and less crowded peaks along the rest of the beach.

Park wherever you can. In the summer it will be mega crowded and difficult to park. For the total novice or kids there is an excellent surf school with 2 sessions a day (10&2)2hrs all inclusive. I'm hooked now.

Atmosphere

The atmosphere is usually pretty friendly. If the surf is good most of the guys in the water know each other. During the summer it is not uncommon to get hundreds in the water so occasionaly tempers get heated. Don't drop in.

General

The surf is usually fun. If you turn up at the beach you'll probably go in. Although it is not epic all the time, and frequently seems slack, fat and gutless, when it all comes together Polzeath cooks.

offshores - pretty good session, went to trebarwith at first but the longboarder with us was moaning he didnt like it so came here instead.  strong cross-offshores made the waves quite mellow and crumbly, but when a catchable wave did come, there were some

- So far on this site ive read LOADS of comments on loads of different beaches, and you know what..it seems that all surfers are chavs, they are all AMAZING surfers, and waves in UK are THE WORST, and if you try to surf any of the waves or just turn up to a beach then local surfers are gonna SMASH YER VAN UP AND BEAT YOU UP!!!Its not just MEDIA giving surfers a bad name, its more the surfers (read some more comments on various places and see what i mean).A ride-able wave is good, surfing is FUN, and this beach offers good waves at times with a good family vibe.PLEASE lets stop this Dogtown/beat up non-locals attitude and all waves suck attitude....

stop rinsing.. - why the hell is every one trashing wave spots. u can just say "i went their and it wasnt that good" u dont have to come out with comments trashing locals. most people with such strong opinions have been surfing their once and its been a bad day so they think they can make an expert opinion about the wave. iv been here and its been so awful its not eaven worth getting wet, but again iv been here when some majour storm swell came in and it turns meaty and fat, not much shape but still nice to surf. plus the location and beach is very very nice i think.
