Located in Yorkshire-Lincolnshire, England, Whitby is a beach break that offers up some decent sections for manoeuvres when the conditions line up. The waves here are pretty easy to surf and break for up to 100 meters over a sand bottom. There can be a good right off of the pier.
What are the best surf conditions for Whitby?
Gets good between waist-high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here when smaller and a shortboard as the size picks up. This break is suitable for intermediate and advanced-level surfers. The surf here is pretty consistent (6/10) and will get busy on weekends and holidays (5/10). The best winds are from the Southwest. The best swells are from the East, North, Northeast, and Southeast. Works on a low to mid-tide best.
We recommend wearing a 4/3 here in the summer when water temperatures rise to 16 degrees. In the winter a 5/4 is best when water temps drop to 7 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
