The Yorkshire coast is rapidly becoming known as one of the best areas for surf in England. The geology is favourable for reefbreaks and when a N swell comes down from an Arctic low and meets with an offshore SW airflow the results can be spectacular; points, reefs, beaches and heavy ledges abound. Secret spots still exist, as access is difficult in some areas, but the crowd tension is starting to show at the name spots as more and more visitors head north instead of to the SW. N swells can occur anytime of the year with the winter seeing the best consistency and often the East Coast can be firing whilst the Southwest endures millpond conditions. It is worth noting that water temps are well below the Atlantic average at all times of the year.
