High Rock on the East Coast is an exposed reef break that has very consistent waves and works all around the year. The best wind direction is from the southwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north northeast. A choice of left and right reefs. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Watch out for urchins, rips, rocks and sharks.
