That was my concern
I am hoping the surf forecast for this end is right from that site I posted link to . 2ft surf and the wavebouy in the channel reading just over 3ft swell .

If its that bad then I guess the Fowey estuary isn't too far or even Saltash and the tamar . Just as well stay here

swell direction is a smidge south of west.

pentewan is still sheltered from that direction.

not sure how much the swell can refract round corners but not enough to ruin the weekend i think (i hope)

Pentewan will be in the lee of the Nare if the swell is West to Sou,Westerly. Any more South than that and it'll slam in there. The Lizard should also take a bit of the sting out of it. Sou' East would be the worst.
