The Ledge Surf Guide

The Ledge on the North Coast is a fairly exposed reef break that has reasonably consistent surf. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Works best in offshore winds from the south southwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the north northeast. A choice of left and right reefs. Rarely crowded here. Beware of rocks, coral etc.
