Best tide movementRising and falling tides
Breaking 500m out to sea off the islet of Dom Hue all the breaks at Perelle suffer from strong winds. Best conditions are a light SE/E wind and a small/medium size groundswell. Anything up to 5-6ft is manageable with a fairly steep takeoff next to a group of rocks, followed by a fast longish wall into the shallows. When over 6ft+ it can become heavy and dangerous, be warned getting caught on the inside on a big day can be a nasty experience! Also watch for the shallow rocks just below the surface on the inside section as the tide drops.

important tidal info - This right is best on a 7.3m to 8.6m tide it gets to fat above that and is doesn't line up due to exposed rocks below 7.3m.As a rule of thumb if the slipway to the island is nearly coverd it will be just about deep enough.It doesn't seem to closeout either.Often goes unridden because of the wind factor sometimes a bit overstated.
