Works best in offshore winds from the west with some shelter here from northeast winds. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the east southeast. Left and better right hand reef breaks.. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
