About Walcott

A good left hand bank can show itself at low in decent swells, plus there can be a number of waves that form off the groynes in smaller swells. There is a constant battle with the erosive power of the ocean here, so new sea defences and sandbanks constantly springing up. Has a good reputation for punchy waves with locals.
