- Rips / undertow
long right hand ride. Good long board wave. If you are looking for More you will need to head towards Gwithen.
Don't get tempted away from the beach to explore the small whirlpool in one of the pools near Hayle harbour. It recently claimed the life of a very experienced surfer and waterman as it drains from the pool into the river via an underground tunnel at low tide and despite it's apparent small size, has the power to suck you down, hold you under, and take you into the tunnel. It looks innocent but it's very dangerous. Best left to out of the water shots / admiration.
I grew up learning on this wave, It can be great fun when it work's. But it needs to be a strong swell. The Rip can be dangerous.
one of the best spots and no crowded
