Coldingham Bay Surf Guide

Coldingham Bay on the East Coast is a reasonably exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Offshore winds blow from the west. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northeast. The beach break provides left and right handers. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Take care of the strong rips here.
