Lynmouth in North Devon is a sheltered point/rivermouth break that does not work very often. Winter is the optimum time of year for surfing here. The best wind direction is from the south. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west northwest. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Watch out for rocks and rips.

Visitor Reviews of Lynmouth

regan from SINGAPORE writes:

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.
