 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Small launch patch of sand, debris everywere and waist high grasses makes lauching a hazzard. It's tricky to see your lines when self launching. Always ride with someone or ask a local. At low tide the walk to the water is very slippery around the water grass, round 50mts from the beach. The wind hollows over the beach and beware that there's alt least 5-8knts more as soon as you leave the shore. Then theres another 3-5knts to wellcome you!

Take your pic on where you wanna ride, heaps of space. Intense place to ride, be alert, very shallow and on the right days you will be able to ride 'Devil's nail' a playfull friend!

Elegant lady, flat sections just magic.

Beware of the clifs and their effect, ask the locals if you are a first timer.

We called 'Devil's Beach' for a reason. Respect it!

Devil's Beach? Crapwell Bay more like - Oh man, this review's just too funny!

If it was a choice between riding Crapwell Bay or sticking forks in my leg, I'd go for forks every time!

This is one of, if not THE worst spots in Kent. Only a hardcore Thanetian who has never left the planet would have written about this dive with its gusty wind, slimy mud, debris-filled water and lumpy brown chop!

Devil's Bay? Hahahahahahahahaha, genius!!
