 Additional Information

Park on sides of road (if you can get a space,not easy in summer months as the vw campervan crew are out!)You can surf it up to about 1hr to high tide on a smaller swell,sometimes later with increased size 4-5ft+ after that the beach is covered. Best to catch it mid tide on the push as it can get sucky! Also on a falling mid tid it can be good but needs to be bigger.Left of beach near rocks is usually better.Leave before tide makes exit painfull.

Atmosphere

This spot is fun when it's on and can have barrels for everyone at a pushing mid tide.A favourite of mine because it can have better quality waves than woolacombe but not the crowds like croyde.You will find me there when it's 4-5ft and the water is sandy coloured,this usually means it's good.it is nice in the evening when the sun sets somewhere behind the headland and you get a picture perfect image out to seaI have never experienced any hastle at this break and the locals like it so respect where due!If you are up for a mellow surf good quality waves and it is coming on to the mid tide push get your ass down here,but just be polite.Woolacombe is such a laid back town most of the year and the RED BARN provides exellent post surf fodder and check the surfboards in the roof.

- This is the best break ever, always a foot bigger than wooly, and less packed than croyde, but the waves just as good!! brilliant!
