Sinclair's Bay on the East Coast is a fairly exposed beach and reef break that has quite reliable surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds blow from the west. Most of the surf comes fis in the form of windswells and the optimum wave angle is from the southeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights and there is a left hand reef break as well.. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for rocks.
