Bracklesham Surf Guide

Bracklesham in South Coast of England is a fairly exposed beach break that only works once in a while. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the north. Usually gets local windswells, but groundswells do happen and the ideal wave direction is from the southwest. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Watch out for dangerous rips.
