About Shoreham Beach, England
Shoreham Beach is a shingle spit, created through years of longshore drift, south of the town Shoreham-by-Sea. The beach is separated from the town by the River Adur.
Here you will find a friendly local crew and a fantastic spot. The beach is made up of stones and shingle, with some sand at low tide, and no concrete groynes. It can get quite choppy, with at least medium waves guaranteed in the winter, while in the summer, there are great sea breezes enhanced by the South Downs just to the north of Shoreham. Shorebreak can get big at high tide.
The beach is south facing, which means it will work in any wind direction as long as there is no north in it. The best wind direction is a south westerly.
