- Man-made danger (buoys etc..)
Crowds are a major issue if over 5 surfers in forget it or less they are the top crew... Great wave but can be dangerous.
These waters get very crowded and can be very dangerous. The area of take off is small and
everyone sits in the one spot to catch the wave. The take off can be steep and longboards are not recommended. It can be a heavy wave with heavy
locals. Experience is essential. Beginners forget it, check out Folkestone instead.
This spot no longer works, since they have stopped dreadging the entrance to the harbour a few years back there has been such a build up of sand that the wave can no longer break along the wall, it just dumps on the beach, shame as it used to be good, so there is now nowwhere to surf in Thanet on a south westerly.

Stoked - Best wave in the SE. had a great surf here today with some friends from London. The locals were cool and everyone got plenty of waves. Everyone should give this place a try, long clean rides to be had. Thanks to the locals for being so patient with me dropping in on a few of you.

- Some nasty agro last week at Ramsgate. With fifteen people in at a time its not a surprise but the locals dont need to use physical force a few words would do the trick. I saw blood from a punched face and from someone hitting the wall. All because of the crowds.
