Fistral-North in North Cornwall is a fairly exposed beach break that has dependable surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the southeast with some shelter here from southwest winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west southwest. The beach break offers mainly left hand waves. Best around low tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Surfing here means negotiating dangerous rips.
