South Lancing on the South Coast is a reasonably exposed 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 northeast. Most of the surf comes fis in the form of windswells and the ideal wave angle is from the southwest. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Best around high tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water.
