Robin Hoods Bay Surf Guide

Robin Hoods Bay in North East England is a fairly exposed reef break that has reliable surf. Winter and spring are the optimum times of year to visit. The best wind direction is from the west. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the northeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights and in addition there are both left and right reef breaks.. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
