Kennegy Cove in South Cornwall is a quite exposed beach break that only works once in a while. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the northeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest.. Best around low tide. Surfing here means negotiating dangerous rips.
