Hoylake is a seaside town located at the north western corner of the Wirral Peninsula, near West Kirby and where the River Dee estuary meets the Irish Sea.
The beach is a large sandy strip around 6 miles long. At high tide it features chest deep water for miles making it an excellent spot for beginners and freestylers.
Hoylake will work on anything from WSW to NE.
Hoylake has a huge tidal range. At low tide you're looking at 2 miles to the water, meaning it's only really practical to ride at high tide.
- 00:06 - High Tide (9.48m)
- 07:09 - Low Tide (0.70m)
- 12:37 - High Tide (9.37m)
- 19:25 - Low Tide (0.85m)
At high tide Hoylake features chest deep flat water/chop, making a good spot for beginners and freestyle/wakestyle riders.

Keep an eye on the tide. You don't want to find yourself 2 miles from the road when it's time to pack up.
