New Hunstanton is situated in The Wash. The various sand bars mean that at various states of tide it features excellent flat water, ideal for beginners or freestylers.
New Hunstanton will work on anything from SSW round to N.
The groynes prevent riding at high tide. Before the tide reaches them, it's better to head round to Old Hunstanton.
Low tide brings butter flat conditions, ideal for freestyle/wakestyle.
New Hunstanton is best at low tide when the sandbar emerges on the outside and the water is butter-flat. As soon as the tide creeps up towards the groynes it's time to pack up and head round to Old Hunstanton.
