Kent is located in the southeast of England. The county is considered to be the Garden of England, due to its abundance of orchards and vineyards. Immerse yourself in Kent's superb sights, historical places and stunning shores and discover its great activities.

Joss Bay is a sandy beach, situated just outside Broadstairs. The beach is sheltered by large white chalk cliffs and it is one of the most popular surf sites in Southeast England. It is an exposed beach break that is great around mid tide. Offshore winds blow from the west, southwest and the best swell direction is from the north. The spot offers both left and right hand waves. Here you are able to explore the waves with swell sizes that can start from less than 1 m/3 ft and hold up to 2 m/6 ft.

In summer, the wind blows offshore at 14%, in autumn the wind blows at 10%, in winter at 10% and in spring at 13%. Note that, the best time for waves is winter. Joss Bay provides with a plethora of facilities, including toilets, cafe-restaurant and lifeguard in summer months. It should be mentioned that, the location is suitable for novice and advanced surfers alike. Also, the best tide movement is rising and falling tides and the ideal tide position is all tides. Last but not least, be careful of rocks, rips and pollution.

Wave Surfing Lessons, East Sussex
/ Camber Sands, East Sussex, South East England, United Kingdom

The huge benefit of stand up paddle surfing over regular surfing is that much smaller less steep waves are catchable before they break, and as the boards are much more stable it is easier to pick up. Additionally, as you start in a standing position, there is no popping up onto the SUP, while the paddle can be used for extra stability and drive on the wave.

Camber offers some for stand up paddle surfing with both small and big waves.

Course Duration: 2 hours
