Tallows Beach on the North Coast is an exposed beach break that has dependable surf. Autumn and winter are the favoured times of year for waves. Ideal winds are from the northwest with some shelter here from northeast winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. The beach break provides left and right handers. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Hazards include rips and rocks.
