Large and Unruly
The beauty of Praa is that is a great bolt-hole for surfers. While the North coast is raging during winter storms and howling NW winds you can be reasonably sure that Praa will offer up some small, clean and manageable surf. While the waves aren't perfect for learners - the beach is quite steep causing waves to break suddenly and powerfully - they are whole lot better than not surfing at all. More experienced surfers, however, love it here. Those grunty waves that might smother a beginner provide a perfect launchpad for good surfers out there.
There was quite a crew out - it's always busy here when there are waves - but there were plenty of waves if you were sat in the right spot.
The waves and weather are due to calm down a bit tomorrow so it's all systems go at Gwithers again. Home, sweet, home!
