“16/3/13 Today was a good day for surfing indeed I didn't go out myself but there were 2 others out. The wave height when the tide was coming in was about 4ft+ give or take but as the tide went out it dropped to 2ft which was a bit of a let down. The wave itself had close outs but an alright ride going left and right and it had quiet a bit of bump on the face. I have found that walton on the naze only has a rideable wave when the tide is coming in and going out at low tide its a pond. I have also found that any strong wind above 15mph will produce a rideable wave. Today it was 20mph to 30mph but with the wind dying down we can only bug and wish for the next ridable wave.
