Groundswells are more common than windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. A right hand reef break. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Sometimes crowded. Take care of rocks in the line up.

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.
