The conditions are most of the times with nice waves around 2m. Best waves in strong SW winds. Lots of surfers who will be surfing the waves between the northern harbor mole and the mole further north. Behind the north mole close to the lighthouse wind and kitesurfers can ride. The water can get choppy with small waves and inconsistent winds. Can have stronger currents. The small mole can be under water, so be careful. Not the best beach for beginners.
