Clearwater Beach in Florida is an exposed beach break. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds are from the east northeast. The short fetch makes for windswells rather than groundswells and the best wave direction is from the north northwest.. Best around high tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Watch out for rocks, man-made danger (buoys etc...) and locals.
