Godrevy Surf Report

Godrevey is the most exposed stretch of St Ives Bay. As a result it benefits by picking up the most swell but suffers from being affected most by the wind. It is fairly exposed to the wind and it is important that either the wind is very light or somewhere between south-south-east or due east else it's likely to be a bit ragged.

Given the right conditions the waves can be epic - long walling lefts and rights. It is also capable of holding a fair sized swell, up 8ft. However this doesn't mean you'll have an easy paddle out!

The break is at it's best on a low tide where it can produce a fast hollow wave. It does work through the tide but becomes increasingly slopey and bouncy.

Godrevey is quite well known for it's clean up sets that seem to come from nowhere and catch everybody out. The peak also moves around a fair bit which works both ways - you can spend all day chasing it around or alternatively sit and wait for the wave of the day to come and find you

For some reason the beach attracts weird forms of surf craft, i.e. canoes and goat boats!
