Lowestoft, Cromer and East Runton
There are some surprisingly high-quality beach breaks across East Anglia but Norfolk receives the majority of northerly ground- swell needed to really light up the coastline.
Shallow sea beds and heavily silted seas in the area give the water a brown colouring which, when combined with seasonal CSO issues and a proliferation of man’s intervention in the coastline, make for some complex coastal and marine issues in the area.
From a surfing perspective however the coast has much to offer, prevailing SW through W winds are offshore and long-range northerly swells reeling down the east coast can produce some French style waves in the shoulder to head high region. The waves rarely push above a solid 3 ft however, on its day, the quality of the waves can produce a hidden gem on the British surfing map.
