Pirates Cove Surf Guide

Pirates Cove in Eastern Samar is an exposed reef break. The wind is offshore from NNE going west to WSW. It is cross offshore on the take off on NE to SW and offshore at the end of the wave on NE wind. It is blown out on E to SSW wind. Consistency of surf from Oct to April/June is everday out back and it's two minutes from the refrigerator. Man needs a cold beverage. Winter swells are broad based and strong, originating from huge low pressure systems off North Asia. As such it gets in everywhere. You just need to find a place where the wind is good since it is N to NE all winter in the PI. It very rarely gets crowded here. Beware of rocks and coral.

One more thing you have us out on the island? We are on the south side of the peninsular point sticking out in the middle of the location map, on the other side near Bulevard break on the map. 5 minutes from town. Been here 22 years bro. All those so called names of breaks along the entire coast line came from my mouth, inadvertently repeated by people in the information business.”
