Jan and Feb lighthouse beach - I just spent 4 weeks at lighthouse beach and cansay that Jan And Feb waves suck. They do come upand some days are a solid 6ft but they are impossibleto catch except for the 2 seconds before they closeout which they do with a powerful crash..a good board breaker.There is a little indian local who got shortrides and a little korean who managed but for all thier effort the best they got was about 2 or 3 seconds.The break is only 20- 30ft from the shore and shallowso you get well pummeled.I can imagine other times of the year in monsoon itslarge and more interesting breaking further out but if itsless than 6 ft its not giong to be worth it breaking far to close in.Also the rips are very strong and appear in seconds.Onemorning alone I watched the life guards pullnear drowned swimmers from the water on 3 seperate occasions.loads drown every year I was told..There are 4 beat up short boards 1 minimal and 1 mal forhire but at 50 rupiees an hour or 300 r for the dayyou will get more fun outof the boady boards on hire.
