Surf breaks in Jersey

Take the ride


Jersey has some of the best waves in the UK. We're old school. We've been teaching the world to surf since we opened the first surf school in Europe back in 1914. Warmed by the gulf stream and powered by Atlantic swell, there's no better rush than paddling out to clean waves in Jersey's west coast. Winter warrior or summer surfer, point break or newbie, anyone can zip into a wetsuit, grab a board and paddle out year round. 

Check out the latest forecast from the bay, and find out when you need to start thinking about waxing up the board. 

Seven Jersey surf tips for beginners

Paddle out like a pro

From a taster surf lesson, one-to-one, to a family day with a difference, ride the waves with confidence. Simply choose any one of a number of friendly surf schools scattered across the beach. Meagan from The Surfyard shares her surf tips to help get you on the waves.

Surfed out? Refuel at The Splash

The Watersplash Beach Bar & Diner is in the heart of St. Ouen's Bay and is the spiritual home of surfing in Jersey. 'The Splash' as it's fondly known by locals, is one of the best destinations for surfy vibes, great music and hearty food.

The Splash welcomes everybody with a mellow hello, just add a portion of local fish and chips, a chilled cider, and you'll wind up watching the waves roll in until sundown.


Seek out the perfect wave without the crowds

Seeking out the perfect wave without the crowds? As the temperature drops, the waves rise, making Jersey a surprisingly epic winter surf destination. Home to one of the world's oldest surfing clubs, Jersey's well stocked with surf schools with all the gear and friendly advice you need to get out on the water. We play host to some big tournaments too, including the European longboarding championship tour. St. Ouen's Bay on Jersey's west coast is the surf mecca, where you can paddle out at locations like Secrets, The Watersplash, Le Braye, La Rocco, Petite Port and Stinky Bay or head further north to Grève de Lecq and Plemont. If you need a little more guidance you could head out on a guided Surfari with Laneez, who take care of everything including your ride to and from the beach. 



Find your freedom

Keith, the surfing grandpa, comes from a tiny village in north Devon. He’s been surfing for over 50 years. With so many surfing spots around the world Jersey wasn't an obvious destination... but with uncrowded waves and epic views, this silver surfer was pleasantly surprised.
