Littlehampton on the South Coast is a reasonably 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 northeast. Most of the surf comes fis in the form of windswells and the best wave direction is from the southwest. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Best around high tide. Watch out for rips / crowds.
