Church Cove in South Cornwall is a fairly exposed beach break that only works when conditions are just right. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the northeast. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the best swell direction is from the southwest. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights. Best around low tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Dangerous rips are a hazard of surfing here.
