It`s a bit mental but when the swells cranking then it goes off and just make sure u turn off the wave before u hit the cliffs!
Relaxed everyones a student and no local mentality,really quiet only me and a couple of mates normally
Tricky wave but worth it, only if you`re good enuff and possibly pack a lid

When it's not flat - Have had a few good days here (no sennen) but works on mid to high tide, never seen the reef work even when there was head high waves, peels left from the harbour wall where it cleans up out of the wind, sand bars can shift to change the breaks, good shop on the beach that sell ham and cheese toasty's, locals are an epic bunch and laid back line up, happy days

epic on its day - well st andrews east is more of a fast heavy wave that tends to close out when the tide is low. at the left end the waves are smaller because it is sheltered by the cliffs which can be useful to paddle out when the waves are too big. and i dont under stand how the description says the bottom is rocky it is quite the opposite. most days are around waist to knee high but you will get the odd day when its head high. hopefully this helped

new years day - the best surf i have seen at st.andrews was on new years day. there was a fair few people in. cold but well worth the numb feet and hands. if your near st.andrews come over a give it a go. surf can be good or none at all. this season has been a good one!!! see you out there!!!!
