Elmina on the Gold Coast is an exposed point break that has quite reliable surf. The surf tends to be best in the spring. The best wind direction is from the north with some shelter here from west winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the south. There is no beach break Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Watch out for rocks.
