Bore in South and West Norway is a reasonably exposed beach break. Offshore winds are from the east. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the west. The beach breaks peel to the left. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Surfing here means negotiating dangerous rips.
