Atmosphere

Hornsea is a lovelly sea side town with a very freindly atmosphere. I've had some brilliant sessions here with no one else out. When Scarborough is head high and busy you'll get a waist/chest high wave here with no one out. Also after surfing you Can get the best fish and chips in any of the great chippies dotted about the place.

Fun day at Hornsea - It was a Fun day of waves at Hornsea, no more than 2 foot but better than it looked, noone in, the current was too strong tho, so I was paddling non stop, and everytime I got a wave had to go out and walk back through the beach. The waves are fun, no
