 Additional Information

Park in the parking on the road. Do not try to walk out over the rocks and paddle off them, rather access the wave via the beach at Brighton. This spot really works in summer time with a medium size North East swell, from about 3-6ft. On high tide you can get long rides with big fat bowling sections. On low tide it is a racey wave with good barrels. Very rarely, when there is a big winter North Easterly swell and you get the morning Westerly/North Westerly winds it absolutely fires.

Atmosphere

Timing is everything for this wave. In summer North Easterly winds dominate and the sell rises and falls quickly. If you get it early in the morning when there is some swell and no wind you will get good waves. also during the wind lull before a cold front hits , whenthere is swell you get it good.

Not nearly as good as Cave, but can have a better wave in summer.
