Lyme Regis through to Kent
The south coast includes some of the country’s most remarkable geography, from Europe’s first artificial surf reef in Boscombe to the Jurassic Coast, home to some of the country’s finest reef breaks.
To the east, chalk white cliffs provide a backdrop to a few hidden surf spots, yet many south coast waves sit adjacent to Victorian piers, harbour walls or groynes, or peel off in front of busy promenades.
The Isle of Wight and Dorset probably receive some of the best swells and are both home to classic waves on the right day.
The south coast is probably home to the the biggest population of surfers in the country, leading to some crowded line-ups at the better known breaks when they are working.
