Ballina South Wall on the North Coast is an exposed beach/Breakwater break that is usually a safe bet. Winter is the favoured time of year for surfing here. Offshore winds blow from the northwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the east northeast. The beach breaks are all lefts. Good surf at all stages of the tide. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Take care of rocks in the line up.
