Mexico Towans - surfing

This is a favourite winter surf spot. Known as "the Site" it is considerably more sheltered than Godrevy and less affected by the wind. When it is good here you get a long walling wave. It is however, one of those places where you spend all your time chasing peaks up and down the beach, but are always out of position. That can often mean being caught inside when one of the random clean up sets piles through.
