Located in the Northern Gulf of Mexico, the Chandeleur Islands are secluded, beautiful, and house some good surf. The norm here is a beach break with waves that break for up to 100 meters providing some great sections for manoeuvres. The islands are remote, boat and plane access only, be aware of your limits and the lack of nearby medical care. Bull sharks are common here.
What are the best surf conditions for the Chandeleur Islands?
Gets good from chest high all the way to double overhead, you can score some of the biggest waves in the gulf here. A longboard will be nice most of the time and a shortboard is best when the size picks up. The beaches can cater to all levels of surfer. The surf here is not ultra consistent (4/10) and very uncrowded (2/10). The best winds depend on where you are, but North, Northeast, Northwest, and West winds are usually good. Swells coming from the East, Northeast, South, and Southeast are all good. Best tides depend on the individual sand bars.
