Courtown in Wexford is a fairly exposed point break that has quite reliable surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds blow from the west northwest with some shelter here from south winds. Waves more likely to be from local windswells than distant groundswells and the optimum wave angle is from the south. The point break offers both left and right hand waves. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Watch out for rocks.
