Larsen Street in West Coast South Island is a fairly exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the southeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the west southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here. Dangerous rips are a hazard of surfing here.
