More on Aligator Rock

What are the best surf conditions for Alligator Rock?
Gets good between chest high and double overhead. We recommend riding a shortboard or step-up as the size picks up. This break is good for intermediate and advanced-level surfers. The surf here usually has a wave (5/10) and will generally be uncrowded (4/10). The best winds are from the Southeast. The best swells are from the North or Northwest. Works best on a mid-tide.
Boardshorts or bikinis are good year-round here. Water temperatures More...
