The Dump in Washington State is a reef break. Autumn and winter are the best times of year for waves. Offshore winds blow from the southeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the west. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Take care of rocks, locals and pollution.
