Polin Beach Surf Guide

Polin Beach on the West Coast is a quite exposed beach and reef break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the south southwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the northwest. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves. Surfable at all stages of the tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care of the strong rips here.
