Oostende on the West Coast is a fairly exposed beach break that has inconsistent surf. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the southeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the north northwest. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of obstacles,.
