Brighton has some wave if you surf there at least you can do a bit of surfing and when you get the chance to get into bigger waves you can really get into them.
Also, its got sea so you can get really good at paddling which will get you fit for bigger waves when you get the chance to go other places.
Scotland is good but can be annoying with winds, cold etc.
Im itching to get down to Portugal this winter for warmer weather so the grass is always greener.

is that your proof that theres big surf?? a 23 second period is ok but still not great and a 18ft buoy reading reads as a 9 foot face which isnt a big wave, but you are from england so i guess this swell is a big deal, also 13ft and 8 seconds equal puss.
