Leftovers Surf Guide

Leftovers in Jeffreys Bay Coast is a fairly exposed beach break that has pretty consitent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the southwest. Groundswells are more common than windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the southeast. The beach breaks peel to the right. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Sharks may be a hazard at this break.
