BackDoor (Haifa) in North of Tel Aviv is an exposed reef break that has inconsistent surf. Winter is the optimum time of year for surfing here. Works best in offshore winds from the south with some shelter here from southwest winds. Still reasonable in light onshore winds Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west northwest. Good surf at all stages of the tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Beware of rocks and pollution.
