Blowhole in North Florida is a fairly exposed beach break that has quite reliable surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the southwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the east southeast. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Best around low tide when the tide is rising. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Beware of crowds,submerged stumps.
