Avalanche in Oregon_South is an exposed beach/Sand Bar break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds are from the east with some shelter here from north winds. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell angle is from the west. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Surfable at all stages of the tide. It very rarely gets crowded here. Take care of rips and sharks.
