Guillotines Surf Guide

Guillotines on the South Coast is a fairly exposed point break that has inconsistent surf. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the south southwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southeast. Best around mid tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Beware of rocks, locals and sharks.
