Pipeline (Dunedin) in Otago is an exposed River Bar break that only works when conditions are just right with no particular seasonal pattern. Works best in offshore winds from the south southwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the north northeast. There is a right hand reef break. Best around low tide. Rarely crowded here. Beware of sharks/rips.
