Rock Sound Surf Guide

Rock Sound in Eleuthera is a reasonably exposed reef break that does not work very often. The favoured time of year for waves is autumn. The best wind direction is from the southwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. A choice of left and right reefs. Best around mid tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care of urchins, rocks, sharks and coral.
