Southeast England is inconsistent and polluted. The Kent coastline has got some surf spots but it's very rare for straight N groundswell to make it all the way down the North Sea. Joss Bay and the surrounding breaks generally work on short-range N/NE windswells. Norfolk never gets big waves but the flint-laden beaches have good shape and offer sucky beachbreaks. In a good northerly swell there are offshore options in any wind from the W round to S. Autumn and winter only.
