Baggy Point offers great shelter from SW-S wind and there\u0026rsquo;s a rip along the cliff that\u0026rsquo;s a great help when it\u0026rsquo;s big. Putsborough suits surfers of every ability and has an easterly offshore wind direction and a westerly swell direction.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003ePutsborough is one of the area\u0026rsquo;s most relaxing places for a surf, and it only gets really busy when it\u0026rsquo;s not surfable at the more popular beaches nearby, so check out the conditions for all of them before choosing.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eAs this spot is sheltered by huge headland it\u0026rsquo;s often still good for a surf even if the wind picks up and blows out the area\u0026rsquo;s other beaches. The waves really pick up as the tide pushes in and they\u0026rsquo;re fantastic towards high tide (just look out for the rocks). There is no lifeguard cover at Putsborough, and although it\u0026rsquo;s reasonable safe to surf there can be powerful currents closer to the headland.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThere\u0026rsquo;s a car park above the beach, and it\u0026rsquo;s worth bearing in mind that you need to walk down a steep lane to access the beach which can be slippers on a wet day.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n","AtGlance":null,"Categories":[{"ParentId":null,"Id":375,"Name":"Things To Do"},{"ParentId":"375","Id":337,"Name":"Activities"},{"ParentId":"337","Id":338,"Name":"Surfing Beaches"}],"Inspirations":[],"HotPick":false,"LocationLatitude":51.1457,"LocationLongitude":-4.22328,"MainImage":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_carousel/2013/05/1368178270.jpg/carousel.jpg","LogoImage":null,"Alias":"devon/croyde/surfing-at-putsborough","MainImageSmall":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_1x1/2013/05/1368178270.jpg/carousel.jpg","Locations":[{"ParentId":"78","Id":297,"Name":"Croyde","Alias":"croyde"},{"ParentId":"78","Id":133,"Name":"Woolacombe","Alias":"woolacombe"},{"ParentId":"201","Id":78,"Name":"North Devon","Alias":"north-devon"},{"ParentId":null,"Id":201,"Name":"Devon","Alias":"devon"}]},"Distance":null},"IsDestinationPage":false}
