Bournemouth Pier on the South Coast is a fairly exposed beach/pier break that does not work very often. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. The best wind direction is from the north with some shelter here from southwest winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the south southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Good surf at all stages of the tide. A popular wave that can get growded. Watch out for rips and crowds.
