March

The clocks change later this month and the tides are starting to build towards their equinoctial peak. The water is at its coldest, 8° Celcius if you're lucky and the March winds often from the north. It's not the best month if your roll is a bit dodgy, but after a winter drought/ spate flux that is coming the norm, it's nice to have some reliable and predictable waves.

2016 TIDES COMING SOON

April

Spring has sprung and the sun has started to get some warmth in it, especially if you are trying out middle of the day neap-tide bitching. Easter Bank Holiday usually helps out for the drive west.
