Chapmans Pool on the South Coast is a quite exposed reef break that has pretty consitent surf. Autumn and winter are the optimum times of year for waves. The best wind direction is from the north. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. There is a left hand reef break. Best around mid tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
