West coast side starts breaking from Sep. The wave is very consistant during autum to winter. You'll need 5mm semi-dry or dry suit during winter, for the water temp is damn cold!
The spot is great. The wave can get sloppy and choppy some times but when the wind stop, it becomes exellent. Usually the wave movement is very rapid. For example, even if the wave is flat in the morning, it can become 3ft on afternoon. Be patient.
