Neah Bay Surf Guide

Neah Bay in Washington is a sheltered beach and reef break that usually has waves. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. Works best in offshore winds from the south. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the northwest. Both left and right reef breaks. Best around mid tide. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Beware of rips, rocks and locals.
