Works best in offshore winds from the northwest with some shelter here from north winds. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the ideal swell direction is from the northeast. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days.

“I consider Cherry hill to be my home break... I have been surfing there for more than 20 years ....
It's a beach break, that breaks into a rip on a bigger days...great for paddling out, not so good when you get caught inside..... at lower tides it breaks hard on the sandbars.
Getting busy”
