Default What winds to fish the surf

Can anyone tell me what winds are best to fish the surf at IBSP. I was told winds coming from the east are least and winds from the west are best.

don't put so much emphasis on wind as some days it will not be a factor. however, a west wind blowing off the beach is bad for one reason.... it is good for another. winds blowing west into your face is better on all levels fishing where you are talking about.( open beach facing ocean). north or south winds have huge potential in the bays as i've had great success with southwest winds in certain locations. every time you go out you should have a clear understanding of what your tide/wind/pressure/cloud cover,and water clarity and presence of bait and lack thereof are. keeping a log of what time you had success while out will allow you to get online and see the weather conditions that you fished that day. you can see what was and also see what will be for the next time you plan to get out. real time conditions change at the drop of a hat and if your fortunate to have success then you can make a note as to what worked on what given application and how the conditions did or didn't work in your favor.

The wind turned southwest a few days ago and turned on the long awaited bite.
If you can when surf fishing position yourself with the wind in your face. The southwest wind will lay the water down flat. That can be nice. But it is also a prevalent wind in these parts through the summer months and can be a pain in the tush. Sustained winds can create a sand curtain and blow the bait to spain. so
I live for the Northeast wind.
