The Spit in Yorke Peninsula is an exposed point break that usually has waves, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the east. Groundswells are more common than windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southwest. A left hand reef. Best around mid tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Watch out for rips, rocks, sharks and isolation.
