Fortuneswell/West Bay on the South Coast is a reasonably exposed point break that has unreliable waves. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. The best wind direction is from the north. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the south southwest. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
