Good Time - Ja- Aug ,Sept are good months , it needs a largish swell from the south ie; a winter groundswell , is blown out and massiv for a day and then backs/glasses off. Low tide break, reef entry.Stay at Turtle Cove which isa 10min walk away.Take malaria pre-cautions.

great place to chill out - visited tofhino 10 years ago surfed ourselves stupid for one month , the point closed out too much and was way too shallow but we surfed to the left of the point a place called backdoors , wave breaks on soft coral then finishes on the beach "sweet wave" very consistent there,s even waves on the back beach of the point called mosquitos lots of orsome beach breaks , even further up the coast 2hrs south of vilunkolus near pomene lodge perfect right point break and several sand bars plenty of waves to be had keep looking

Consistency - Hi fellas/girls,
Looking to stay in Tofo as a 1 week part of a 3 week trip and was wondering how consistent it is in Aug/Sept?
Does it just work on groundswell or will windswell show on the point?
Thanks in advance, Tommy.
