The best wind direction is from the northeast with some shelter here from northwest winds. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the west northwest. A choice of left and right reefs. Best around mid tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Beware of rips, rocks, locals and sharks.
