The Farm on the South Coast is an exposed beach and point break that has fairly consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds blow from the west northwest with some shelter here from northeast winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. Waves at the beach break both left and right It very rarely gets crowded here. Sharks may be a hazard at this break.
