The Cribber in North Cornwall is an exposed point break. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. Offshore winds are from the southeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Easily blown out by an onshore breeze Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the ideal swell direction is from the west. No beach break here together with both left and right hand reef breaks offshore.. Best around low tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Take care of rocks in the line up.
