Surfspots Great Britain and Irish Sea
For the best surfing action, plan a trip between October and January, that is when the nice sets start rolling in. Although the water is a bit nippy, the outdoor temperature is moderate and the swells are sweet. This time of year is also less attractive to the beach leisure crowd, meaning more space for the surfing community to play.
If you are just learning to surf, it's wise to start in a populated area with professional instructors and folks to keep an eye on you as you learn. Popular north east shore locations like Saltburn in Cleveland or Watergate Bay in Cornwall offer the kind of setting for novice surfer's comfortable and safety. Besides, hanging out at the local pubs presents excellent opportunities for learning tips from the long-time local surfers.
So once you decide whether you want to join the crowd or strike out on your own for your British surfing adventure, just use the Internet to check on local conditions and accommodations. Luckily, there are so many variations you are bound to find one just right for you.
