Withernsea in North East England is a fairly exposed beach break that only works once in a while. Winter and spring are the optimum times of year to visit. Works best in offshore winds from the southwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the north. The beach breaks favour lefts. Best around low tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Be careful when surfing close to the groynes.
