“Water quality often not good here. Has a reputation for sewage pumped into River Blyth and I’ve been ill a couple of times after a session here which is really annoying as works quite nicely with a decent swell. Bit of a current usually carries you towards river mouth and occasionally south. Local authority needs to understand we surf in winter too so stop dumping sewage on the sneak!”
