Marsden Bay Surf Guide

Marsden Bay in North East England is a quite exposed beach break that has unreliable waves. Winter and spring are the optimum times of year to visit. The best wind direction is from the west with some shelter here from north winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the north northeast. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Be aware that the sea here is polluted.
