Torrisdale Bay on the North Coast is a quite exposed river break that has quite consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds blow from the south. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell angle is from the northwest. The river break offers mainly right hand waves. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Beware of rips / quicksand.
