Horseshoe Surf Guide

Horseshoe in Siargao Islands is an exposed reef break that has fairly consistent surf. Autumn and winter are the optimum times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the west. Windswells are much more typical than groudswells and the ideal wave angle is from the northeast. A choice of left and right reefs. Best around high tide when the tide is rising. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Watch out for dangerous rips.
