Marsland Rights is the wave on the other side of Marsland Left point. It requires the same tides and is a bit more exposed to wind than the left. It can give a long ride although you have to decide how you will get there. Either a long paddle or cliff climb. It is not possible to climb here from Marsland Mouth. Due to the access problems little is known about this break but it is there and can go off.

hey nick - you seem to have it all sussed except barras never breaks because its not a wave, its a cliff, marsland right goes off, you just aint seen it happen. ruseys is neither super dangerous nor unridable, just fickle (if you can surf). the box gets surfed and sponged heaps, and tremoutha gets surfed when it breaks, which is rarely. you won't see anyone in the water at milook when it is breakin coz look has to show well over 12 feet of swell - more like 15 for tremoutha to feel it. and the big left is tremoutha. it just looks like its in crackie coz its fuckin huge. i know, i was out. i hope your mate dan has more of a clue than you so that his wonderful book can fuck up the local surf scene even more. oh yeah - and shut up mate

ERROR - Crosstown is by Morwenstowe and not Sandymouth. Same score, low tide beachie or high tide cliff death. No reef rides here.

Local Knowledge. "WEBMASTER READ THIS" - Someone has been filling this site up with poo. Barras nose hardly ever breaks and when it does its fuckin dangerous. "Bitches" and "Devils Palace" are the same place, about 1/4 mile up the coast and around the corner from bossiney, it is deep water and never breaks. Crosstown is a part of sandymouth, Dunsmouth "rivermouth" is fuckin weeny and doesn't effect the surf, it is also a part of sandymouth beach, Gullies "gullastem" is fuckin rocky and almost impossible access. Hippa rock is always stuck out of the water. Granted, a wave breaks onto it, or surges onto it but it aint ridable. Marsland right is deep water and doesn't break. Allthough you might get a shitty beachbreak at spring low tide. How you get down there is anyones guess. Pengold is the same place as Rusey beach and has dodgy access, a reef which is superdangerous and unridable. Doesn't really qualify as a break. the beach never gets anything because it is either a cliff/shore dump or the reef is breaking which you can't surf. Stanbury is a fat beachbreak and the righthander is only short because the first section closes out and the main section also usually shuts down as the swell is Never in the right direction for it to break well. Also the access is so dodgy at high tide when it is likely to break, you need a death wish to surf it. The box is a legend and allthough real, noone ever surfs it because it is just a scary tube with a fat shoulder. Hardly anyone has the balls. Tremoutha Haven never gets ridden. The big left is at crackington. The left at tremoutha (inner cam point) hardly ever breaks and when it does, everyone will be surfing millook. It is a wave which is there but not the one in the description. Yeol mouth is a beyond weeny cove and allthough it does have a right and left wave, there are 400ft cliffs which prevent access. Nearest access is at higher sharpnose point which is a LONG paddle. Bring a boat. It all boils down to this, between bude and hartland point, all the waves are low tide beachies and the reefs are not doable because off dodgy cliff access. The reef at marsland and spekes are the only 2 real accessible options. You will catch the odd wave if you go looking but you will have to get down the cliffs to find out. All will be revealed in the forthcoming book by my mate Dan
