The Box in Valencia is a fairly exposed beach and reef break that only works when conditions are just right. Summer in particular tends to be flat. The best wind direction is from the west southwest. Usually gets local windswells, but groundswells do happen and the ideal wave direction is from the east northeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights and in addition there are both left and right reef breaks. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Beware of urchins and obstacles.
