Saltwater in Far South Australia is an exposed point break that has fairly consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the southwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southeast. Best around mid tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Watch out for rocks, rips, sharks,isolated break.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
