Ouakam in Almadis is an exposed reef break that has inconsistent surf with no particular seasonal pattern. Offshore winds blow from the northeast. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. A choice of left and right reefs. It's sometimes crowded here. Rocks are a hazard.
