Posties on the East Coast is an exposed reef break that has quite reliable surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds blow from the northeast. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southwest. There is a right hand reef break. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. It's sometimes crowded here. Take care of rips, rocks, locals and sharks.
