Check out the east coast between mablethorpe and skegness mate. Its not gonna excite you if your a seasoned ripper, but its got some great longboarding waves and there is always a surfable wave at the beach when the off-shore bouys get to 4ft. Yes, the water is brown!... but only because of the dark sand and silt churned up by the swell. The water is always a couple of degrees colder than Cornwall tho.

Cayton Bay 3 miles south of Scarborough and is about 2hrs drive from Nottm, max. They have a little surf shop with hire and a good range of gear on sale. There's hot showers and outdoor changing rooms. Parking is 2quid all day.
Waves get up to about  8ft and break perfectly, with minimum white water and barely any strong current.
