Dump Beach Surf Guide

Dump Beach in South Australia - East Coast is a reasonably exposed beach and reef break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the north northwest and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Groundswells more frequent than windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the south southeast. Waves at the beach break both left and right together with both left and right hand reef breaks offshore. Even when the surf is up, crowds are unknown. Dangerous rips are a hazard of surfing here.
