Posties in South Australia - East Coast is an exposed reef break that has reasonably consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the northeast. Groundswells are more common than windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the southwest. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Watch out for rips, rocks, locals and sharks.
