BBC Surf Guide

BBC in - is a quite exposed point break that only works once in a while. Summer offers the optimum conditions for surfing. The best wind direction is from the south southwest. Windswells are much more typical than groudswells and the ideal wave angle is from the southeast. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for rocks and jellyfish.
