Located in Southeastern England, Brighton-West Pier is a decent pier (now burnt down) set up that offers up some easygoing waves perfect for longboarding or beginners. The waves here are easy to surf and break for up to 50 meters over a sand bottom. Watch out for old pilings, the waves here are not as good as they used to be before the pier burnt down, but are still just as popular.
What are the best surf conditions for Brighton – West Pier?
Gets good between waist high and overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here in all sizes. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here does not break very often (3/10) and will generally have a crew on it (6/10). The best winds are from the North. The best swells are from the East, South, Southeast, and Southwest. Works best on a low tide.
We recommend wearing a 3/2 in the summer when water temperatures rise to 17 degrees. In the winter a 5/4 is best when temps plunge to 8 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
