Bracklesham in South Coast of England is a reasonably exposed beach break that only works once in a while. Winter is the optimum time of year for surfing here. The best wind direction is from the north. Windswells are much more typical than groudswells and the ideal wave angle is from the southwest. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Watch out for dangerous rips.
