Needs to be going off! Very Sheltered so the right side of the beach towards Hawks Point is the only place to get breaks... dead calm most of the time but I've surfed 6ft+. Very safe beach. Never red-flagged so even in semi storms you can ride.
Usually quiet family beach so gets forgotten about!!! easy parking, plenty of space on beach.
Pants if its not right - but you can get lucky.

lost bodyboard - yeah i no, i had my absolutly pro bodyboard nicked from carbis bay the other day - it was pink and said i love fat people on the bottom, it cost me a whole £3.99 from jims cash and carry in praa sands so it does mean something to me. i also had my ripcurl raptor 5/4 nicked which cost me £249. the board is very important so please keep an eye out but the wetsuit doesnt matter, its not important. cheers

Have you seen my surfboard? - i left my surfboard somewhere last week. If you see anyone riding a surfboard then it is mine!! please return it.

local of the area - What spoon wrote the write up on this spot, in semi storms hawkes is toodangerous to even go near so you have to surf in the middle or the left hand side of the beach, and as for never being red-flagged, how can a beach be flagged if it doesnt even have a lifeguard on it.
