Lynmouth in North Devon is a sheltered point/rivermouth break that only works once in a while. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the south. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west northwest. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Often Crowded. Beware of rocks and rips.
