What's the best time of year to surf Tengan (for consistent clean waves)?

augustBest Season: spring
The best time of year for surfing Tengan with consistent clean waves (rideable swell with light / offshore winds) is during Spring and most often the month of August. Clean surfable waves are typically found 4% of the time in August while 9% of the time it tends to be blown out. For the remaining 87% of the time it is considered too small by most surfers but may still be OK for beginners and groms at times.
Surfable waves that hold up well for longer rides in prevailing cross-offshore, offshore or light wind conditions.
blown out
Surfable sized waves that are of poorer quality due to prevailing onshore, cross-onshore or windy conditions (may be preferable for kitesurfing).
too small
Waves usually considered too small for good surf. Some wave-magnet breaks may still work though if conditions are right (on occasion).

Evan Jones from Japan
“Hits hard before and during typhoons. Outside of these conditions whatever the forecast predicts, you have to subtract 3-4 feet of surf due to its sheltered location from open ocean swell”
