Bournemouth Surf

Bournemouth Pier, good when Southbourne is closing out and heavy, is a hollow beach break that does not pick up much in the way of groundswell and attracts crowds of body boarders.
In fact here you get crowds full stop. Bournemouth is Dorsets biggest settlement and when the pier is working everyone from Lyme Regis to London soon seems to know about it, even though it is never very good!
