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

octoberBest Season: spring
The best time of year for surfing Voodoo with consistent clean waves (rideable swell with light / offshore winds) is during Spring and most often the month of October. Clean surfable waves are typically found 25% of the time in October while 38% of the time it tends to be blown out. For the remaining 37% 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).

Moggy from Australia
“Contrary to map info Voodoo is located on South side of Kurnell Peninsula in Sydney's Sutherland Shire. The main wave is a left reef located 500 metres South of Potters Point. Best around half tide or low tide when small. On higher tides the left isn't as hollow, though a shorter fun right breaks from the peak.
Closer to the car park at Potters Point is a shallow and challenging right named Suck Rock.
All these breaks are reef with access to and from the water via paddling through rip channels.
On big swells exit can be tricky, and mis-timing can result in the unfortunate surfer being washed down in front of the rocks to Boat Harbour or the Mays Reefs.

[Editor - thanks. We'll update the location]”
