Ashkelon Shimshon Surf Guide

Ashkelon Shimshon in Tel Aviv and South is a fairly exposed sandbar break that only works when conditions are just right. Winter is the best 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 Waves more likely to be from local windswells than distant groundswells and the best wave direction is from the west northwest. Waves at the sandbar are both lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up.
