Elcoson on the North Coast is an exposed beach and reef break that has quite reliable surf. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Offshore winds are from the south. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the north. The beach breaks are all rights. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for rocks.
