Cullen on the East Coast is a quite exposed beach break that has reasonably consistent surf. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. The best wind direction is from the south. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the best swell direction is from the north northeast. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Dangerous rips are a hazard of surfing here.
