Silos on the North Coast is an exposed reef break that has reasonably consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the south southwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the northwest. There is no beach break as well as a left hand reef break.. Best around mid tide. Rarely crowded here. Watch out for rocks.

Each of the forecast pages for this surf break feature a global and regional wavefinder tool to locate the best surf conditions in the area around Silos.

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.
