Pink Rocks Surf Guide

Pink Rocks in Far South Australia is an exposed reef break that does not work very often. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the southwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. A reef breaks right. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of urchins, rips and rocks.
