 East England

UK

At its peak east england has some world class surf. Mostly it fits about average. Swell can range from pretty flat calm to pushing 20ft. Periods also vary, though its pretty rare to get a decent period with a decent swell. Mainly you end up with an average swell around 3-6ft with a period round 9-10 seconds.

If your into surfing its definately worth checking out. And if its pretty close to you then go for it! Its around average most of the year and for beginners its pretty uncrowded... but when the surf hits its peak its just about the best surf you'll find in the UK.
