 Additional Information

The trek up the cliff path after a good surf is very very tiring.

Atmosphere

At Low or mid tide it can be a sponger's dream. It's basically a shorey, but it can stay open for a good, fast ride. If you wipe-out you WILL hit the bottom, but at low tide that's just sand so take your beats and enjoy them! As the tide pushes up you get closer to the rocks either side of you, and at high tide you'll struggle to see a breaking wave as it gets pretty back-washy.

General

A great spot for fun loving boogers. It's best during september when the water is crystal clear and the banks are all in good order after a mellow summer. It rarely gets crowded as if the conditions are good for Rinsey then leven and P Sands will also be working. It's a better Shorey than Praa, but falls way beyond Leven for quality - but then where in the UK doesn't!?

Car thieves - AGAIN! - weekend surf was awsome. Had my car robbed, window smashed in and the guys in the water gave me right agro. Not worth it at all

watch out for the car park - Seriously, lock your car well the car park is known locally as a heaven for car theifs dont leave anything on show. Even better turn up in a clapped out car and the asbo's will not give it a second look.

Rinsey - In My View the best Break in Corwall. Consistent through all year with often huge barreling waves. Went down couple of years ago to see 15-20ft waves. Dangerous currents in winter but a spot for surfers who love Huge waves. Don't ruin it, beautiful cove.
