How surfable is this place? is it just a random shot of a closeout, or is this the British Pipeline?

Yeah this place is good up to just over headheight. After that there is a lot of duckdiving. Still one of the best beachbreaks in the UK on it's day

At that size, it would be pure effort. Lots and lots and lots of closeouts. May get the odd one that opens up but you'd probably be waiting a while

This is absolutely epic, I don't know how this photo is not popular or lots of comments?!
