Sennen Cove in North Cornwall is an exposed beach break that has very reliable surf and works all around the year. Offshore winds blow from the east. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west. Waves at the beach break both left and right. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Take care of the strong rips here.
