Crantock in North Cornwall is a sheltered river break that has pretty consitent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds are from the southeast with some shelter here from north northeast winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west. Waves at the river are both lefts and rights. Best around low tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Surfing here means negotiating dangerous rips.
