About Bournemouth

Fun, beachbreak peaks with sandbars anchored by the pier. East side is the most popular spot on the Channel coast, with lefts heading back into the pier and faster rights leading down the beach. More peaks on the west side without the SW wind protection. Paddling channel next to pier. On a solid SW groundswell (or SE windswell) and N wind there are barrels for the taking.

Always crowded with locals, students, beginners, etc. Year-round pay car park by the beach, hard to get a spot in the summer.
