    Might be able to hook up on 30th. Bod off here is at Widemouth.

    Basically, high tide is Widemouth down at the south end on a reef called Black Rock. Mid to high on a big swell is Crackington . Low tide head up to Sandymoith or Northcott.

    These are crowd avoidance tips. The Bude beaches can be good but are always busy.

    There are other spots locally which are more of a challenge too.

    just come back from a week in Bude.
    Been coming down to this part of Cornwall for the last 5 or so years (2 x 1 weeks trips per year).
    Listen to Greame or Bod, they have it wired, for swell, wind and tides.
    But I can vouch for Sandymouth, surfed it on Saturday, out by myself, 1 ft but bit bigger on the sets, great banks which change with the tide, even had an nice old sealion come over and say hello
    Crocklets; in Bude, nice wave
    Summerleaves; never normally give it a go, but at mid+ tides, really nice steep righthander into the river mouth, really fun wave, great wedging bodysurfing wave
    Widemouth; plenty of peaks to chose from, reefs come into play at mid higher tides, sand banks are good, so just wait for the tide to move a foot or so, and new opportunities come into play (just like Sandymouth). Had great long waves at both, linking up all the way to the beach.
    Enjoy, Henry
