What are the best surf conditions for 72nd Place?
Gets good from waist high to double overhead we recommend riding a shortboard here, especially when it gets good. This break is best suited to intermediate and advanced surfers. The surf here is not consistent (4/10) and will have some people on it when it is on (7/10). Offshore winds from the Northeast and good swells from the South or Southwest will serve up the goods. Works on all tides.
