From Kingsbridge head towards plymouth, then follow the signs for Bantham, easy eh. Just watch out for the lane, especialy in the summer, it gets real busy. Theres a big car park at the beach though with toilets.

This wave breaks like a point over the sand banks formed by the river Avon. You can either paddle out through the surf directly to the line up, or you can use the rip on the left of the beach to get out, then paddle across.

A pretty relaxed place overall, but if its good then the local guys will be all over it, be patient. There nice guys really. Theres plenty of space up the beach if things get a bit too crowded.
This is a great wave, it breaks pretty fast and the bank is really shallow in places so you've gotta be careful. Great barrel sections from take off, even when its not at its best its a sick wave.
