 Additional Information

OK - Lets sort this out! Lynmouth is NOT a secret spot! How can anywhere that is nearly ALWAYS crowded (irrespective of the day of the week) be regarded as such?
Despite the length of ride it's not, by any stretch of the imagination, a classic.
The break can be divided into three main spots:
1) The point (left hand side) 2) Blacklands (right of the river mouth) 3) A N Other spot (sorry - I'm not about to divulge info on this one). The point as they called it is actulalryl called carparks, and this was a secret spot once, be respectfull and we will respect you!

Atmosphere

As alluded to above, crowds are a real problem here. That's not to say that the atmosphere is tense and unfriendly (although it can be on occaisions), but that more of a competitive atmosphere prevails.

General

Mixed feelings on this one - sometimes a fantastic place to surf, other times it simply doesn't do it. To get it classic, too many factors need to come together (ie tides, swell height / direction, winds etc). Unfortunately, this doesn't happen very often, and when it does, it usually doesn't last the day!
