Smiths Beach in Phillip Island is a fairly exposed beach and point break that does not work very often with no particular seasonal pattern. Works best in offshore winds from the north. Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the south. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights and in addition, there is also a left hand point break. Best around mid tide. When the surf is up, crowds are likely Beware of rocks, rips and sharks.
