Southbourne Surf Guide

Southbourne on the South Coast is a fairly exposed beach/groynes break that only works once in a while. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. The best wind direction is from the north. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. A fairly popluar wave that can sometimes get crowded The crowds in the water make a gath helmet a good idea.
