If they find out I posted this I am a dead man but surfers deserve to know good spots.
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!!!!!!!!
