Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves as well as left and right hand reef breaks.. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Surfing here means negotiating dangerous rips.
