Zud on the West Coast is an exposed beach/Jetty break that only works once in a while. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Ideal winds are from the northeast with some shelter here from north winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the northwest. The beach breaks favour rights. Sometimes crowded. Watch out for rips and jellyfish.
