Widemouth Bay

North Cornwall Surfing at Widemouth Bay
July 1999:

Widemouth bay is one of the better breaks on the north coast of Cornwall, but suffers from over-popularity. When the waves are in short supply you can see 4 or 5 people trying to get on the same wave. This community-oriented approach to surfing when the chips are down is nice to see. However there may be an argument for going elsewhere.

At low tide the is a wide area on which to hunt for waves and the problem is less.
