Warrington Surf Guide

Warrington in Otago is an exposed beach and reef break that only works when conditions are just right with no particular seasonal pattern. Works best in offshore winds from the southwest. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell angle is from the northeast. The beach break offers both left and right hand waves and a left hand reef break too.. Best around high tide. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up. Beware of sharks/rips.
