Kirra on the Gold Coast is a very sheltered point/Groyne break that has fairly consistent surf. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the south. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Often Crowded. Take care of sharks, rips and rocks.
