 Additional Information

At Low tide it is only worth going in if it's a ultra low tide like 0.1m if you catch it on a really low tide with an off shore it gets hollow and bowls perfectly.

AT High tide a 6.5m+ the beach realy starts to work as two wedges are produced from either side of the beach, it gets far heavier than Tolcarne at High tide and is generally not as good a wedge but every now and again you can catch that one wave that for Sponging at least excells anything in the Newquay Area.

Atmosphere

In the winter it's empty even if it's going off 6ft+, why I have no idea.
When there is anyone in you'll find everyone keeps to themself, its one of those spots where you can only hear the waves.
The Lifeguards are cool and only hassle the city folk.

Theres a beach bar, creach and all types of stuff so even if your marired with child you have no excuse for not going for a surf.

General

As a sponger I only surf it the wedge at high tide when the waves are 3-5ft and the wind off shore.
WHen you get an "high" tide 6.8+meters it's worth going down to check out the shore break though only if the surf is small..if it's over 3ft the shore break sudeenly looks very dangerous I myself though I was man enough to surf 4ft Lusty shorey and almost got my neck broke when it dumped onto dry sand.
