As always, it depends.

It depends on the shape/depth/slope/etc of the beach, and how different wave/swell heights and speeds interact with it. At high tide green waves could be setting up nicely for a stretch, where at low tide they're breaking right away. Or at low tide you could have good waves forming for a stretch, where at high tide there's nothing until they rise suddenly and dump right on the shore line. Different tide levels can be preferable on different days.
