Murkle Point on the North Coast is an exposed point break that only works once in a while. Winter is the best time of year for surfing here. The best wind direction is from the south. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northwest. There is no beach break and there is a left hand point break too. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Beware of rocks and pollution.
