A Few Days

A rare European left transforms into a world-class pointbreak

Strong winter swells have created an all-time winter for European surfers. Somewhere along the English coastline, this left that rarely breaks came to life for a run of swell, transforming it into a world-class pointbrek for a few days. Goofyfooters beware: this will give you a massive case of FOMO.

    First time this spot has broken for 3 years

    Reminds me of Seaside Oregon.
    Well, minus the disgusting women, rampant drug use, and inbred locals.

      You surfed there?

      • Matt

        I have surfed there, and what you hear is true, it is crazy there. I have seen cars vandalized and cops laugh about it and say ” what do you want us to do “. The wave is world class, the locals are on the whole, scumbags.
        Tips for visitors, park way the hell down the beach, like way way far away, do not take pictures from the rocks, do not cut off locals, do not surf up the point, do not talk about the point, etc etc etc.

      I hear the locals are brutal, have been warned numerous times not to go..

        Locals are not that brutal. I surfed there for 10 years, and you have to show respect…period. If not, your going to get an ass kicking. One thing to remember, park down the road if you have out of state plates. Don’t park between the hotel and the break. That’s where the brutes hang out looking to start a fight. World Class wave though…very heavy…and second point is even better around the corner. Shallow, but the barrells are worth it.

          You obviously know it too, but seriously, it is brutal for anyone who hasn’t been there at least 5+ times, knows how to surf, knows how to keep your head down/stfu, and take what waves are free. That place is the absolute definition of localism. I have felt much safer in Santa Cruz, Hawaii, Sebastian/Smyrna, etc.

    Sounds like PV. World class waves that rarely break, guarded by some local douchebags. What comes around, goes around. hopefully these idiots will experience the same kind of “hospitality” 364 days when they have to surf elsewhere.
