it aint too bad - i surfed this wave in the summer, isn't a bad wave, has good wind shelter, can be a strong rip on high tide near the rivermouth, i should imagine it gets good on big swells in the winter when its offshore, a little less crowed than newquay beaches and fistral, easy access aswel has parking right on the beach!

annoynomous - mannnn im never gunna surf this wave again the local kids with pipedream boards get every wave and theres this old bloke who sits miles out and picks up every bomb set.
good vibe though.
