Carskiey Bay on the West Coast is a very sheltered beach break that has unreliable waves. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the north northwest. Windswells are much more typical than groudswells and the best wave direction is from the northwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around low tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Take care of the strong rips here.
