Locations Comments
Bigbury Dead onshore. Can be hard work.
Crow Point Good for blasting across to the jetty and back
Daymer Bay Wind blowing straight up the estuary from Camelford. Gusty. Best on rising tide. Can be excellent over the Doom Bar
Exmouth Duck Pond Maybe a little sheltered inshore. Good further out into the estuary. Best on falling tide.
Exmouth sea front More or less dead onshore. Provides a good speed course in the deep water channel once the sand bar is exposed, otherwise difficult conditions
Gwithian cross-off. Excellent for waves
Kingsbridge Once you've made your way upwind from launch point, good sailing.
Marazion Pretty much onshore. Safe
Roadford Reservoir Blows along the lake - ideal
Saunton Excellent. Cross-shore from L. Good waves. Don't get too close to cliffs because wind lifts. Can be gusty
Stithians Reservoir Means sailing across the narrowest part of the lake, runs are shorter, particularly when the water level is lower. Good for gybing practice and tricks. Good for impressing your kids, other half, girlfriend, etc.
Thurlestone cross shore swell riding once 1/4mile offshore, long reaches
Westward Ho! Cross-off. Excellent wave conditions

Carbis Bay
