It breaks only at low tide and is normally a fun lefthander,but depending on the swell direction it can produce some rights. It breaks best from 2-5 foot and it can also handle a light to moderate onshore wind.

Things to watch out for

  • A strong rip runs along the end section.
  • Above 3 feet, it can produce a pretty heavy shore break.

White Rocks Beach, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland

White rocks is one of the many hidden gems along the North coast. It is a beach break and ideally works on a 3-4ft North swell with a southerly or SW wind.

When the swell is too small for Portrush and too big for Port Ballintrae this is the North coasts best bet. There are not too many hazards and any tide is good to surf. It can get big, fast and hollow, but is also very reliable on small days. It is an exhilarating location and wave that provides the goods. It can get crowded in summer time, but the locals are super welcoming and great craic. Drop into Troggs surf shop for all your supplies and local recommendations.
