the wave breaks in front of a long cement wall, sometimes the wave breaks really good in different spots. Most of teh time it breaks in the middle of the wall.
The Paddle Out:
When you get on the beach make sure to watch teh wvae first and time the sets so you can have an easy paddle out, but if your thee on a storm swell, dont waist your time watching cause it will just be a minefield of whitewash and it will be a tricky paddle out, but on the semi.- clean days you can time the sets.
If its big and its low tide, when you reach the sandbar you will be duckdiving in about 1- 2ft. of water with 6 - to bigger waves breaking right ontop of that and its just a pain, the whitewash will drag you everywhere. On High tide its a pretty easy paddle out but its still tricky.
After the hurrican season it will change, and it will change the waves from super hollow wedges to super hollow walls of water and just about everything in between. On somedays though at low tide it will send out some pretty insane backwash so thats always a hazard.
it is a very powerful one, it will throw you onto the sandbar and bash you. But when you get the wave/barrel of the day youll forget all about it, unless you have a gnarly gash. The wave will wedge and line up all on the same or on different sets it is just unpredictable, so just grab rail and hold on.
respect the locals, study the spot, have fun, be careful
A celebrity waiting to be seen. My favorite wave in the entire world, no matter what. everyone critisizes it because they dont know the wave and they just dont catch it on a good day.
It will hold up to Storm swells, and its always barreling. So when the inlet is a washing machine, Bethune is breaking nicce. It always looks bad and small from the beach too, so just paddle out and watch and if it really isnt good than just go to teh inlet. But if your on teh beach and it looks good, its probablly really good.

Dont get a job at the newspaper. - That is the most retarted comment I've ever heard to describe a surf spot on wannasurf. Is this all the information you can come up with ? Yes it used to be called "black beach" but the blacks sold out and now the house values are pushing 1 million dollars everyone who live there is white. What you cant surf there now? I dont get it. There is already another post (with photos) on the wall in Bethune and Bethune is already on surfline so please revise your "description" or do us locals a favor and delete the post.
