Ashkelon Shimshon in Tel Aviv and South is a reasonably exposed sandbar break that has inconsistent surf. Winter is the optimum time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the southeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Still reasonable in light onshore winds Windswells are much more common than groundswells and the ideal wave direction is from the west northwest. Waves at the sandbar break both left and right. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here.
