The Beach Guide

Chapel Porth - surfing

Chapel Porth has some of the best waves on the North Coast and consequently some of the best surfers (although relatively underground)

The waves here are generally powerful and hollow with a variety of lefts and rights working between mid and low tide. Not ideal for beginners

Chapel Porth is in the "Badlands", and is fairly well known for its localism. This is the are where the local crew were known as the "Disciples" a few years back. However, if you know what you are doing and mind your manners you should be OK!
