Kimmeridge Bay Surf Guide

Kimmeridge Bay on the South Coast is a fairly exposed reef break that has very consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the north. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. No beach break here and there are also left and right hand reef breaks on offer.. Best around high tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Take care of crowds / rocks.
