on a good day can produce some sweet closeout barrels.
Best spot to the far right, taking off close to the island on a dropping tide.
A good Cornish wave...can get pretty crowded when it's on - due to it being right in the middle of St Ives.
When it's sunny the water looks a little French...Aqua marine green!

- Whoever did the write up for Porthmeor doesn't know shit! Porthmeor works in SW,S or SE winds. N and NE are ONSHORE. Works best in W swell though will work in anything from N to SW (if long period wrap around)
