What a piece of poo! Very much like Bantham it sucks ass. I've had a few good surfs there but it never gets powerful or hollow enough to get nice and deep, dont go, keep all your trips to the north coast.
Not as consistent as Bantham or Challaborough but at mid tide can create a fast steep wall breaking off the rocks towards the rivermouth. Can closeout a lot but get it right and there's a lot of fun to be had. Easy paddle across river to Bantham.
This beach is just the other side of Bantham, just across from the river Avon. It needs a bit more swell to work than Bantham but when it does you often get a longer ride. If the sand banks have formed correctly from the river you can get a really nice fast breaking right. I have had 300 metre long rides here. However windsurfers do frequent the beach.
Could all the Kooks who surf at Bantham, Challabourough and the rest of South Devon please go to Bigbury, its really, really, really good - honestly. You can get some great trims here, rip the curl, and quik the silver if you like, I've even seen someones Mum get a green room here!
