The Core in North Taiwan is an exposed beach break that only works once in a while Works best in offshore winds from the southwest. Most of the surf comes fis in the form of windswells and the optimum wave angle is from the northeast. The beach break provides left and right handers. When the surf is up, it can get quite busy in the water. Watch out for rocks.
