Information about surfing in this area
add relevant information about the surf, conditions, temperatures, classic spots etc.
The main source of swell for East Anglia comes from North or North Westerly swells from the low pressures above Scandinavia. Good ground swells are most likely to occur from October to March. The main swells in the area are from local windswell and are short lived. The water around the coast here looks pretty miserable due to the silt sea bed - producing what looks like a brown sludge. However, the water quality in this area is generally good. Don't expect any real size - it rarely gets about 4 feet here. The shallow sea floor takes most of the punch out of the waves.
give details of the surf gear that is needed for this region, include boards, wetsuits etc.
Bring a small wave board / longer board. Temperatures can get pretty cold in the winter so a 5/3 wetsuit is recommended with boots and a hood. The wind from off the North Sea can be brutal.
