Green Island Surf Guide

Green Island on the South Coast is an exposed reef break that is usually a safe bet, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Ideal winds are from the northeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the south southeast. There is a left hand reef break. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. Sometimes crowded. Hazards include urchins, rocks, locals and sharks.

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
