China Beach in Vancouver Island is a fairly exposed beach break that only works when conditions are just right. Summer in particular tends to be flat. The best wind direction is from the east northeast with some shelter here from northwest winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the northwest. Waves at the beach tend to peel to the left. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded.
