Discription of surf spot: Southerndown, Wales

I generally go in at low water and surf it up until the tide reaches the pebble bank. It can be tricky clambering up over the pebbles at full tide. Beware of the current taking you around Trwyn-Y-Wytch point as its a long paddle before you can get out again. This whole coastline in now much less polluted than it used to be owing to the construction of effective sewerage works. Winter continues to see much loss of beach sand due to uncontrolled offshore sand dredging for aggregates.
