Bournemouth and Southborne work brilliantly. They will usually have the biggest waves in the (central) Channel Coast and has had the cleanest surf for its size that I have seen on the South.

By Southbourne Sponger , 24-07-2007

RIP Bistro aka Dirty Wedge - Rest In Peace Southbourne - had many a decent day over the years growing up as a local sponger, it will take a good few years to return the beach to normal and for the bistro to start cranking again, meanwhile all the southbourne sponging crew have to share shitter, slower waves with longboarders and surfers at boscombe and bournemouth. ******IF YOU MISS SOUTHBOURNE - TRY 'RED ROCK' AT HENGISTBURY,PARK UP AND HEAD DOWN TO BEACH &TURN LEFT. WALK FOR ABOUT 1/2 MILE UNTIL YOU SEE MASSIVE RED ROCKS ON THE BEACH. ON BIG, ROUGH DAYS (what other days do we get on the south coast?) A SPOT WILL WORK, HOLLOW, FAST SHOREBREAK BUT IS MAKEABLE IF YOU'VE GOT THE BALLS** - Happy spongign!

interestin - 360 mag. some local spongers gave truthfull opinions on who they think is the top rider(s). The rest of them it's an a#se kiss. so without kissing a#se who is the most influencial rider

RUINED BEACH IS DANGEROUS - SOUTHBOURNE HAS BEEN PERMANENTLY RUINED NOW, IT'S GOT WORSE AND WORSE SINCE THEY 'REPLENISHED THE BEACH'I CANT UNDERSTAND WHY THEY BUILT UP THE SAND SO HIGH AT THE WATERS EDGE. IT BASICALLY MADE A SAND WALL, AGAINST THE WAVES, IT SHOULD BE A SLOWLY DECLING BEACH, ITS NOW A 5FT DEEP DROP, ITS ABSOULTE RUBBISH.ITS DANGEROUS WHILE SWIMMING IN THE SUMMER, YOU HAVE TO CLIME OUT ITS SO DEEP NOT TO MENTION CUTTING YOUR FEET ON THE CRUSHED SHELLS AN SHINGLE, THEY'VE RUINED PEOPLES LIVELY HOOD,
