Blacksmiths Beach in Newcastle is a sheltered point/Breakwater break that only works when conditions are just right with no particular seasonal pattern. Works best in offshore winds from the west. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. Best around mid tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Watch out for man made dangers and rips.
