Hayling Island on the South Coast is a sheltered beach break that only works once in a while. Winter is the optimum time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the north. Windswells are much more common than groundswells and the ideal wave angle is from the southwest. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Dangerous rips are a hazard of surfing here.
