Surfing in Lynmouth Bay

Lynmouth Bay, is just 20 miles from the famous UK surf beach of Croyde. Under the right conditions Lynmouth is one of the best left-hand surf spots in the UK.

Reviews

This place is superb. Fantastic long left walls when Croyde is blown out or not handling size. Needs a big swell to wrap around and high to mid tides. - Jaffa, Sydney

When it's on Lynmouth is a class wave, not for the faint hearted though... - Johno, Plymouth

Utterly awesome, if Fistral is double overhead and wind is from south to west, Lynmouth will break for 200 yards at low tide. Get it while you can if you can. - Dubus, Plymouth
