Europe’s biggest surf population ride the surprisingly good beach, reef and point breaks of a long coastline battered by both Atlantic and North Sea breakers. Even the English Channel gets surfed by a dedicated crew that is growing every year. Captain Cook introduced surfing to the western world and the English have followed his lead by remaining at the forefront of European surf culture for decades. When the low pressure systems bomb through and the reefs are way overhead, there is little doubt that England is a hard-core place to surf.
