Located in Yorkshire-Lincolnshire, England, North Bay is a fun beach break that offers up some great sections for performance surfing when the conditions line up. The waves here require a bit of skill to surf well and break for up to 100 meters over a boulder and sand bottom. There is also potential for a couple of offshore reefs at the north end of the bay, although these rarely break and are rarely surfed.
What are the best surf conditions for North Bay?
Gets good between waist high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here if smaller and a shortboard if the size picks up. This break is suitable for all level of surfer. The surf here is consistent (7/10) and will be very crowded (8/10). The best winds are from the Southwest. The best swells are from the East, North, Northeast, and Southeast. Works on low to mid tides best.
We recommend wearing a 4/3 in the summer when water temperatures rise to 16 degrees. In the winter a 5/4 is best when water temperatures drop to 7 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
