A 10 minute walk north of Bathsheba, Sandbank or Cattlewash as it is also known, looks like an ideal open beachbreak for beginners. However this stretch is strafed by rips and currents and the line-up is usually messy, unless the right near the rocks is working, so it's better suited to experienced surfers who will get the best from the dumpy close-outs and onshore slop.

No crowds to contend with, just rips.
