Atmosphere

it does suffer from a lot of severe localism especially from the groms who surf and live there. i wouldn't get too involved with them if they do drop in as last time i got my tyres slashed.

General

there isn't usually a good wave at mothecomb. just watch out for the local groms, they do get fiesty. bodyboarders aren't especially liked there unless they are well known or locals
