Bournemouth is a large Victorian town in Dorset is more well known for its hen and stag parties and it's nightlife than surfing. Needs a hoofing great south to south west swell to get it pumping, meaning its better in winter and autumn. The council have recently invested in Europe's only artificial surfing reef along with associated surf pods and facilities at Boscombe, which should as it beds in add an extra bit of a quality to the area. The reef has had a mixed bag of reports, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s supposed to give up good right with a long workable wall and a shorter hollow left. There are more spots to head for, such as the sand and pebble banks that form on either side of the Boscombe pier and more than often this will be waist high and mobbed. Bournemouth pier itself has a wave, but just the same as the other two, it also suffers from small surf and crowds.
