Tow ins only due to its size. Only access is via boat.
Probably the biggest spot anywhere in the UK. This is the UK's version of Cortes Bank. Gets little publicity as so far out to sea and rarely surfed as a result.
In the area of another tow in spot named Cribbar
Epic but one thats only for the elite sufer with big pockets due to the costs of hiring a boat and jetskis.

Why I posted it - I posted in Rosie because I don't believe in Secret Spots the seas there for everyone. Also, the Zorbas is hardly a secret, there are pictures of 40ft waves plastered all over A1 surf in amongst those of the big Cribbar days.
