Horseshoe in Siargao Islands is an exposed reef break that has fairly consistent surf. Autumn and winter are the optimum times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the west. Windswells are much more typical than groudswells and the ideal wave angle is from the northeast. A choice of left and right reefs. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for dangerous rips.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
