Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the south southwest. A choice of left and right reefs. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Take care of rocks 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.

They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
