Diamond Beach in New Jersey is an exposed beach break that does not work very often with no particular seasonal pattern. The best wind direction is from the northwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southeast. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Watch out for dangerous rips.
