Cruise down to Mousehole near Penzance, get changed in the toilets at the west end of the harbour wall it breaks out front there, all Penwith locals know this one and are trying to keep it quiet.

Atmosphere

Needs a huge north coast swell and hopefully the swell will then rap around. Works at low to mid tide getting better at lowish rather than mid. DO NOT TURN LEFT!

Locals Need To Chill Out - Whats all the fuss about, we have always know about this through word of mouth. The chances of a group of travelling surfers (having just checked wannasurf) being in Penwith when the once a year swell hits Mousehole is very low! There are other far better spots in Penwith that should be and will be kept quite and if any one does we should release a death warrant!!!!!!!!
