8 When is the best season for beginners and experienced surfers?
The summer is great for beginners and intermediate surfers because the waves are not as powerful. The winter is the best time for seasoned surfers since the ocean delivers strong winter swells which result in wave faces regularly higher than 6-8 foot. Beginners find at that time good waves at the south coast.
