Karitane Point in Otago is an exposed point break that does not work very often with no particular seasonal pattern. The best wind direction is from the south southwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the north northeast. Best around high tide. Rarely crowded here. Take care of sharks/rips.
