Tides

Hey there! I'm new to surfing, not been doing it long but getting on OK I think and enjoying it!!

Went out to Longsands at Tynemouth last weekend hoping to get in the surf, but the tide was right in and the waves looked pretty harsh so thought I'd leave it for another day.

I was wondering when the best time is to go out? Is it best when the tide is out?

Cheers!

Ha ha, yes, offshore. I know this. But do the tides make a difference. Best to surf when the tide is in, out or somewhere in between?

Before the abuse starts again...

It depends on the spot; some are good at high tide, some at low, and everything in between. Some are good when the tide is rising and vice versa. In general, the waves tend to be a little more forgiving at higher tides, at low tides the bastards can jack up suddenly and dump you. In my experience anyway; YMMV.
