Ham on the North Coast is an exposed reef break that has pretty consitent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the south with some shelter here from west winds. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the optimum swell angle is from the northwest. A reef breaks left. It very rarely gets crowded here. Watch out for rocks.
