Brighton is one of the few bone fide surf / skate cites in the UK. With strong roots in the north of both surf and skate in the UK the area has produced some great British surfers. Cliff Cox, a former English and British masters champ, learned to surf there, runs a surf school there and has helped out many of the cities groms. Robbie Mayo has produced a film about Cliffs life in an area that while is a long way from Huntingdon Beach, has quite a few similarities.
