Too really get the best out of Saunton when its like this you need a 10'2" or bigger...1. because you could sit outside the pack and pick off the best waves 2. You can spend lots of time dangling your pinkies off the nose and 3......... can't think of the 3rd but 1&2 should be enough.

The Thatch, (In Croyde) for 2 pints, about 10 steps into Billy Buds for 2 pints and then a 3 minute walk to The Manor to finish up...

this spot is officially on my "to do list" now if someone could just recommend a good pub nearby to grab a pint or 6 to warm up after..

It was a great sight. What you can't see is the 0*C air temp! But every face in the car park had a smile under an air-chilled top layer! The waves just rolled in all day long.
