Cromer is an inconsistent beach break on the North Norfolk Coast. Mostly the surf breaks on the left and/or right side of the pier. The spot works best on a mid to high tide on the push. Generally a northerly or a north westerly swell will produce waves. The pier does provide a little shelter from the wind. As with many surf spots around the North Norfolk coast rips can be particularly bad.
Taken from www.southcoastsurfers.com with permission: After Bournemouth this is the second most popular spot, therefore gets very crowded when solid. However, with the artificial reef to be installed in summer 08 it will be likely to overtake Bournemouth Pier. At the moment there is a good wave to be had although a slightly shorter ride than Bournemouth, for both long and shortboarders. This spot will be likely to become an epic surfing hotspot in years to come once the reef has been installed. Average size swell, can get crowded. A fun wave. Good vibe.
Long sandy beach, good vibe when not crowded, a good longboard wave.
Beach break, rarely goes off, can be a nice wave.
