Visitor Reviews of Lynmouth
“In mid winter in 2002 as I came around the coastal road in Devon I saw the best formed surf I have seen anywhere. Better than Hawaii, OZ, NZ, Fiji and Bali. 6ft barrels peeling one after the other +100m down the point with only two guys out. The only problem was the water was chocolate brown and there was snow on the beach plus I didn't have a board.”
