Atmosphere

this spot can produce some long workable rides in the right conditions (a few times a year if you lucky) me and a few mates discovered this spot for the first time under just these conditions(1996) after a big storm (gale force SW) the winds turned to a light NW we had about a week of the best surf i have ever experienced in hastings - consistant,long,peeling rides and being a local this is saying something

General

Please note that this spot is very rarely this good but you can sometimes get a few waves breaking off the pier or the nearest groyne on a rising tide under moderate S/SW winds
Rock-o-nore is a better break but crowded under good conditions - if you want a chilled out mellow wave then head for the pier

surfable - surfed it the other day and it was surfable. its not cornwall but its better than sitting around moaning about how bad the south east is. the local crowd was really friendly and most were from a group from epic life. worth a look after strong s/sw winds if your local.
