Eastbourne Surf Guide

Eastbourne in Wellington is a sheltered reef and point break that only works once in a while with no particular seasonal pattern. Offshore winds are from the north northeast. Groundswells and windswells are equally likely and the ideal swell angle is from the south. A reef breaks left. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. Sometimes crowded. Take care of rocks in the line up.
