Okanda in SE is a fairly exposed point break that has unreliable waves. The surf tends to be best in the spring. Works best in offshore winds from the north northwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care of the strong rips here.
