Tow Hill Beach in Vancouver Island is an exposed beach break that is often working. Works best in offshore winds from the southeast and there is no shelter here from cross shore breezes. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the best swell direction is from the north northwest. The beach breaks peel to the left. Even when the surf is up, crowds are unknown.
