St Lucia in Kwazulu-Natal is an exposed beach and reef break that only works once in a while. Summer offers the optimum conditions for surfing. Works best in offshore winds from the northwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the southeast. Waves at the beach break both left and right and there are also left and right hand reef breaks on offer.. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of sharks and rocks.
