Offshore winds blow from the southwest. Tends to receive distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the northeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights together with both left and right hand reef breaks offshore.. Best around high tide. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Watch out for rocks.
