looks better than it is - On the approach from whitby where all the cars park by the side of the road about 400m  from river mouth, as the waves start to get bigger away from the protection of the headland in a northerly swell. A short paddle out with fast waves and stro

re: californian in London - Hey, so, you're in London. Probably chosen the worst place in the UK if you're into surfing.
The south coast has hardly any swell, as does the south east coasts.
You need to get down to cornwall and devon (about 5 or 6 hours to the west of London). It's there that we have our best breaks.
We also have decent breaks on the Yorkshire coasts about 5 hours north of London. Check Saltburn and Cayton Bay. Pretty decent on their day.
But all in all, go down to Cornwall if you want the best waves (holding up to 2.5 metres easily).
You should have gone and studied at Bristol or Plymouth or something.... somewhere closer to the surf!
