PERFECT DIRECTION: W or SW

TIDE: LOW (SANDBAR STARTS TO SHOW AT 3.6 AND IS EXPOSED AT 2 AND UNDER)

Perhaps the fastest stretch of water in the country for windsurfing.
Southend is a fantastic spot with two very fast courses:
The East course is over a mile long (!) and works from West round to South. The West course works from SW to ESE but is shorter. Both courses can be mirror flat on their day and with very clean wind.
The only downsides to Southend are the walk out which takes around 15minutes, and the lack of frequency with which this side of the country gets a good blow. That said, good speeds can be achieved in fairly light winds due to it being such a perfect set up.
