Runswick Bay in North East England is a fairly exposed reef and point break that has pretty consitent surf. Winter and spring are the favoured times of year to visit. Offshore winds blow from the southwest. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the best swell direction is from the north. No beach break here and there is right hand reef break too. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
