China Beach in Vancouver Island is a fairly exposed beach break that has inconsistent surf. Summer in particular tends to be flat. The best wind direction is from the east northeast with some shelter here from northwest winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the northwest. Waves at the beach tend to peel to the left. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded.
