Hornsea in North East England is a quite exposed beach break that only works when conditions are just right. Winter and spring are the favoured times of year to visit. Offshore winds blow from the southwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around low tide. Even when the surf is up, crowds are unknown. Beware of rips and groynes.

Visitor Reviews of Hornsea

Gary Hughes from UNITED KINGDOM writes:

Hornsea is a surprisingly punchy wave working in all tidal conditions. Generally smaller than Scarborough or Cayton. On it's day Hornsea's beach breaks can absolutely fire. With long walling lefts in north swell with the occasional barrel section. Hornsea also works well in a South swell giving fast punchy waves although a little short in length. Overall a very underrated spot with little or no crowd, producing good, fun waves. A friendly spot with a few regulars and plenty of space.
