What are the best surf conditions for The Cove?
Gets good from chest high to double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard here most days, although a shortboard will work when bigger. The Cove is best suited to intermediate and advanced surfers, although there will always be beginners in the lineup. The surf here is inconsistent (3/10) and will be incredibly crowded in the summer (10/10). The best winds are from the West. The best swells come from the Southeast. Check this spot on a mid to low tide.
We recommend wearing boardshorts or a bikini in the summer when water temps rise to 25 degrees. In the winter a 5/4 is needed for the 4 degrees. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
