About Bude - Crooklets

The Victorian resort town of Bude has two beaches, Crooklets to the north and Summerleaze to the south. Crooklets is a quality low-tide beachbreak with hollow, punchy rides, but be aware of the fingers of rocks as the tides pushes in. Good rights to the northern end and lefts to the south. Busy in the summer.
