There are then 3 main locations at Kimmeridge, the Ledges to the left, the bay in the centre and Broad Bench to the right.
The bay is the safest, but beware drifting in too close to the rocks. Bit painful otherwise. Broad Bench and the Ledges generally have larger, though not necessarily cleaner, surf. The ability to roll is crucial at these two locations otherwise you will very quickly get taken by the rips. Happy Surfing!!!

 Informations supplémentaires

To get to Kimmeridge bay you need to pay a small toll (£6.00 with a boat on I think) and then you can drive right down to a carpark 1 minute walk from the slipway

No matter how excited you are about the swell - drive slowly through the village - people live here, and no wave is worth a kids life.

Atmosphère

Some good local surfers, there may be alot of people in the water but hardly any catching waves when its overhead.

Général

It Rocks ! world class on its day but isn't everywhere. Be careful of the shallow spot which almost sucks dry at lo-tide (the waa-boomf section)

other reefs - I lived in bournmouth for a while and surfed the bench a few times and the ledges but there are other waves on this bit of coast maybe not as good as the bench but still good I parked somewhere near chapmans pool as close as i could get and walked down to chapmans pool and around the first point to the west there i found a peak not that hollow but good i surfed for a couple of hours on my own then got out had a little fire to warm up and then surfed for another hour I have surfed all over the world in some very good waves (much better than england)but due to the solitude and scenery this was one off my most memorable surfs.I live in cornwall now and I wish that it had the same type of rocks as the durassic coast because it has so many points and reefs but it hardly ever gets swell.Cant win in england.Its about an hour walk min to get to chapmans pool but to surf on your own its worth it.I hope the bornmouth crew dont mind me revealing this spot but noone surfs it as far as i know

Chris - Please Please Please STOP surfing when the red flag is flying. The Army are now considering closing the whole bay to surfers. How can we try to keep the Broad bench open & improve access, when idiots ruin our whole struggle by sticking fingers up at the wardens & surfing there whenever they feel like it. We need to keep some sort of relationship with the army to preserve access to one our best breaks, and not ruin it so they close the bench and maybe the whole bay for good. If you need to protest against the Army’s plans join the ABBA group. DONT SURF THE BENCH WHEN THE FLAG IS FLYING
