Works best in offshore winds from the west southwest with some shelter here from south winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the north. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Good surf at all stages of the tide. The location means that it never gets crowded.

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.
