Lighthouse in North Florida is a sandbar break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Works best in offshore winds from the west southwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the east. Surfable at all stages of the tide. It's sometimes crowded here. Take care of - Rips / undertow - Man-made danger (buoys etc.).
