 Additional Information

Park at the end of brighton beach. The wave may look like its going to close-out but just go for it, you will get such long barrells.Paddle straight out onto the peak you want to surf. If it is big, you need careful timing, it breaks hard. It most works on a smaller swell, ground swell or North Easterly wind swell. On low tide it gets hollow, and bowls nicely.

cave rock - right breaking wave,best surfed at high tide,line up on the north corner of the tidal pool and watch out for the full stop in the midbreak in front of the rock.Best to dive the spot first to see the reef layout.

- cool spot! but dangerous... always empty lineup but be aware of heavy waves and smashing onto the bottom! and its not sand... having heard of a guy who broke his neck there and drunk. so be careful!
