Huntcliff in North East England is a fairly exposed point break that only works once in a while. Winter and spring are the optimum times of year to visit. Works best in offshore winds from the southwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northeast. Best around low tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Beware of pollution and rocks.
