Octagon House in Texas is an exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf. The best conditions for surfing are during the hurricane season. The best wind direction is from the northwest. Waves more likely to be from local windswells than distant groundswells and the ideal wave direction is from the southeast. The beach break provides left and right handers. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Beware of rips, sharks and jellyfish.
