Lake Ferry in the Waiararpa is an exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds blow from the north northeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the south. The beach break provides left and right handers. Sometimes crowded. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
