 Additional Information

This spot only tends to work several days a year,most of which go un-noticed by all but a handful of lucky surfers aho happen to be near by to check it out.It works best on a 10ft(3m)+ swell cpoming from the S/SW,accompanied with S/SW winds(to push the swell in and round 'the Lizard' point.However it does work once sometimes twice a year,on a huge W/NW swell(20ft/6m+) this then will give a cross-off wind.The occasional Easterly swell can be good too.
There's also a good to semi-excellent reef break at the west-end of Gylly beach.This is best surfed on an incoming tide Mid-High.
