120th Street in Delaware is an exposed beach/Jetty break that has consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the west. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. The beach break offers mainly right hand waves. Best around low tide when the tide is rising. Sometimes crowded. Be wary of rips - they make surfing here dangerous.
