Wylie Bay Surf Guide

Wylie Bay in Far South Australia is a quite exposed beach break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the north. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Relatively few surfers here, even on good days. Take care of rips, sharks and isolation.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
