GOOD PEAKS BREAKING OFF MOST OF THE GROYNES ALONG THE SEA FRONT. FAVOURS A NORTH OR NORTH EAST SWELL GIVING LONG WALLING LEFTS WITH THE ODD BARREL SECTION. CAN HAVE QUITE A SWEEP ON BIGGER SWELLS SO ALWAYS GOOD TO REGULARLY CHECK YOUR POSITION. NEVER AS BIG AS SCARBOROUGH OR CAYTON BUT GOOD FUN WAVES TO BE HAD THAT CAN PACK QUITE A PUNCH. ALSO A GREAT OPTION IF SCARBOROUGH OR CAYTON ARE MAXING OUT.
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.
Great spot to get away from the crowds and back to the roots of surfing.
