Dunes Surf Guide

Dunes in Atlantic is an exposed reef break that has consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds are from the south. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the north. Both left and right reef breaks. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Take care of rocks in the line up.
