The best tide to surf is with falling and rising Tide. Watch out for the stream strenght. It's very strong. Especially with wind coming from the NE.
You must wear a wetsuit. In July and August you don't have to wear a wetsuit. So HAVE FUN.
As far as I know, only me and my friend are surfing at pile 12.
