Balmedie Surf Guide

Balmedie on the East Coast is an exposed beach break that has pretty consitent surf. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Offshore winds are from the northwest. Waves more likely to be from local windswells than distant groundswells and the ideal wave angle is from the southeast. Waves at the beach are both lefts and rights. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for dangerous rips.
