Point breaks are rare, but a joy to surf. Your legs will burn, and you’ll have so much time to think about your surfing you won’t know what to do with yourself.

Point Breaks are rare because we need specific conditions for the swell to properly wrap and peel like point breaks do. The angle of the coastline has to match up with the angle of the swell and that doesn’t happen that often.

In the video below we talk about a few important things to note about point breaks:

  • How to approach your surfing when you have so much time to think about things
  • The run-around, and why there is usually some current/sweep at point breaks
  • What makes a point break special and why they are rare.
