 Additional Information

The left at Hartland quay is the best kept secret in the area, very rarely about 5 days a year on overa 2.5M swell with no wind, a classic wave is to be had, I have surfed here for about 10years and had it to myself. Any wind totally spoils it. Otherwise at low tide on smaller swell, a shitty beachbreak which often closes out is to be had, a dangerous paddle out over virtually bare rocks. Better off going to Spekes which at least produces a good wave 99% of the time.

Atmosphere

General

A backdrop of spectacular cliff scenery gives way to pebbles and rocks with sand exposed by the retreating tide. There are coves and waterfalls at the beach.

Mr - I don't care if you've been 'surfing here for 10 years' - if you really respected it you wouldn't post it on here. Don't bring your friends

By then i got stuck in the hartland race for three days and ended up in Germany. , 29-06-2007

surfrunner - I can down from croyde for the weekend and surfed off the slipway at tripple over head, broke my board and had to paddle all the way round to the safer left hand beach.
