Where can I go???? Help

I have just come back from Tobago in the Caribbean where i got my first experience of surfing (well more swimming and getting pounded really). I really want to get some proper lessons and find a surf spot near to London. I currently work at Canary Wharf and I have looked in driving/train to Newquay but it's 5-7 hours. Is  there anywhere nearer? or quicker (France ?) or is there a cheap fly and surf option? All help welcome. Ideally I want to do it at weekends.

Lot a kooks on this list gabbing about big surf, including the guy who doesn't know that jaws is peahi.

Gotta question though, are there surfers keeping stoked in london? Is it possible? May have to move there for work.

Does anybody know if you can surf at Rackwick Bay on Hoy. I remember seeing some big waves there on holiday. Strong rip tide might make it too dangerous though. What type of wetsuit is needed for Orkney Surfing as well?
