Located in Western Long Island, New York, Lido Beach is a fun beach break peppered with jetties that breaks over a sand bottom. The waves here are pretty easy to surf and break for up to 100 meters providing great sections for manoeuvres and when good, barrels. Low to mid tide provides the hollowest waves. Picks up more swell than Long Beach.
What are the best surf conditions for Lido Beach?
Gets good between waist high and triple overhead. We recommend riding a longboard when smaller and a shortboard when bigger. Lido Beach is best suited to intermediate and advanced surfers. The surf here usually has a wave (5/10) and will be insanely crowded (10/10). Residents usually sell parking in their driveways or yards during the summer. The best winds are from the North. The best swells are from the East, South, and Southeast. Works best on a low to mid-tide.
We recommend wearing boardshorts in the summer here when water temperatures rise to 23 degrees. In the winter a 5/4 hooded wetsuit with gloves and booties is required to surf in the 4-degree water. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
