Shelly Beach on the East Coast is a reasonably exposed reef break that has fairly consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds are from the north northwest. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. Reef breaks provide lefts and rights. Best around high tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care of rocks and sharks.
