Tathra in Far South Australia is a fairly exposed beach break that has quite reliable surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds blow from the west. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Best around mid tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Beware of rips and sharks.
