Atmosphere

This spot was my god send when i stumbled upon it. i had been living in totnes nearby for about a year and surfed bantham regularly, my instinct told there were other waves around. i went searching on a flat day and this place looked like it ticked all the right boxes. next time bantham was at about 2-3ft i drove to thurlestone and was welcomed by exquisite english peelers and one friendly dude out. he lived in knigsbridge and was suprised to see an unfamiliar face. from then on if bantham was good i was surfing around the corner at thurlestone. such a great wave for the area and none of the crowds of bantham. i am an aussie who no longer lives in totnes so am happy to put this info out there as i dont think i will ever surf there again and think it shouldn't be wasted.
