Lowestoft in East Anglia is a fairly exposed beach break that does not work very often. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds are from the west. Most of the surf comes fis in the form of windswells and the ideal wave angle is from the north. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Beware of groynes, rips.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
