The Surf Season runs from mid February to November, when low pressure systems in the southern Indian Ocean generate consistent swells.

The early part of the season has the most stable weather, with light, favourable winds. Swell consistency and size improves from February, with March, April and May having very clean conditions.

June to August have the most potential for big swells, although tropical storms can be more common in these months.

September and October are also very consistent months for swell, with winds less variable and tropical storms becoming less frequent. November is still quite consistent for small to medium size waves and the weather is usually perfect for a beach holiday.
