Eastbourne on the South Coast is a sheltered beach break that only works once in a while. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the north with some shelter here from west winds. Usually gets local windswells, but groundswells do happen and the ideal wave direction is from the south southwest. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Best around mid tide. Be aware that the sea here is polluted.
