Carbis Bay - surfing

Occasionally good surf but takes a BIG swell to get going as it is fairly sheltered. When it does work there can be a wedgey, sometimes hollow wave at the right end of the beach. It is however affected by back-wash towards higher tides.

Works on winds from sothwest round to NNW.
