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 are of another tow in spot named Cribbar

- I dont see what the fuss is about, this place hasn't got any chance of getting crowded.

picture - that picture was posted on a1surf as pushing 30ft, not 15ft as it says on its comment

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.
