About Torquay

This SE-facing beach tames the SW swell and orders it into nice, easy rollin' rides for the hordes of beginners, longboarders and every other type of craft. Has some rocky formations at both ends including Drainoes, a peak that leans towards the lefts halfway out towards Point Danger, a spot where kites and windsurfers traverse the boggy rights and is rarely any good for a paddle.

Super crowded in summer plus a large clubbie presence eminating from the large SLSC at the SW end.
