Sunset in Newcastle is an exposed point break that only works when conditions are just right. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the west. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southeast. Best around mid tide. Rarely crowded here. Take care of locals and sharks.
