Graveyards Surf Guide

Graveyards on the West Coast is an exposed beach and reef break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds are from the east. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the west. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. Rarely crowded here. Watch out for rips and rocks.
