Church Bay on the West Coast is a quite exposed river break that has consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the east northeast with some shelter here from southwest winds. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the south. The river break offers both left and right hand waves. Best around low tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care of rips and sharks.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
