Tends to receive distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
