Located in Southeast Scotland, Arbroath is a fun beach break that offers up some good sections for manoeuvres when the conditions line up. The waves here are pretty easy to surf and break for up to 50 meters over a sand bottom. Pretty sheltered, needs a big N/NE swell or a smaller SE swell. There is also a left point on the North end that has good potential.
What are the best surf conditions for Arbroath?
Gets good between waist-high and overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here when smaller and a shortboard as the size picks up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here sometimes has a wave (4/10) and will generally be uncrowded (4/10). The best winds are from the West. The best swells are from the East, Northeast, and Southeast. Works on mid to high tide best.
We recommend wearing a 4/3 in the summer when water temperatures rise to 14 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.
