Hopscotch in Efate is an exposed beach and reef break that has quite reliable surf. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the north northwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the south. A left hand reef break. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
