Located in Durham/Northumberland, England, Beadnell Bay is a fun beach break in a large crescent bay that offers up some great sections for performance surfing. There is also a reef in the middle of the bay that holds size pretty well creating an A-frame break when the conditions line up. The waves here are pretty to surf and break for up to 100 meters over a sand and rock bottom.
What are the best surf conditions for Beadnell Bay?
Gets good between waist high and double triple overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here when smaller and your shortboard as the size picks up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here is pretty consistent (6/10) and will usually have a small to large group on it (5/10). The best winds are from the North, Northeast, Northwest, Southwest, and West due to the protected and crescent nature of the bay. The best swells are from the East, North, Northeast, South, and Southeast. Works through the tide.
We recommend wearing a 4/3 in the summer when water temperatures rise to 15 degrees. In the winter a 5/4 is best when water temperatures drop to 6 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
