Located in Southeast Scotland, Balmedie to Newburgh is a long stretch of remote beach break that will offer up good sections for turns and hacks when the conditions line up. The waves here are pretty easy to surf and break for up to 50 meters over a sand bottom.
What are the best surf conditions for Balmedie to Newburgh?
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 all levels of surfer. The surf here usually has a wave (5/10) and will hardly ever be crowded (3/10). The best winds are from the West. The best swells are from the East, Northeast, and Southeast. Works on all tides.
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.
