Aoura in Kyu Shu is an exposed reef break that only works when conditions are just right. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. The best wind direction is from the northwest. Waves can be ok even in light onshore winds Windswells are much more typical than groudswells and the best wave direction is from the northeast. The left reef break is best, but there is a right reef too.. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Take care of rips and rocks.
