Backdoor in Sicily is an exposed reef break that does not work very often. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Works best in offshore winds from the north northwest. The short fetch makes for windswells rather than groundswells and the ideal wave direction is from the south southeast. No reef break here. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
