White Clay in Wild Coast is an exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the west northwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the east. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for sharks.
