| Towan Headland, United Kingdom|
The Cribbar (Cornish - kribow: reefs), also known as the Widow Maker, is a reef off the Towan Headland in Newquay, Cornwall, England, United Kingdom.
The Cribbar is best known for creating annual big waves, popular with experienced big wave surfers from across the world. Wave faces can be in excess of 30 ft (9.1 m). The Zorba is a reef 2 miles (3.2 km) further off the coast and can create even higher waves.
According to local folklore, the Cribbar was first surfed in 1966 by Ric Friar and Australians Pete Russell and Johnny McElroy as well as American Jack Lydgate.
