Works best in offshore winds from the west northwest with some shelter here from southwest winds. Windswells are much more typical than groudswells and the ideal wave direction is from the southeast. The beach break provides left and right handers. Surfable at all stages of the tide. It's sometimes crowded here. Take care of urchins.
