Stonehaven Surf Guide

Stonehaven on the East Coast is a fairly exposed beach and reef break that has fairly consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds are from the west. Most of the surf comes fis in the form of windswells and the optimum wave angle is from the south. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights and there is a right hand reef break as well.. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Watch out for rocks / rips.
