Go To Gerickes point in Sedgefield. Walk down the beach (20min) past the point and look out as soon as you cross the headland. (Past the Gerickes lefthander 'point' break.) If its on, it'll be there and you'll see it.

We call this spot explosives but dont know, locals might have named it already? Never seen anyone out here though, everytime we've surfed it, it has been only us out. Crazy mother of a wave and deffinately not for the faint hearted. Needs a big, clean groundswell to start working properly and is best enjoyed on glassy days with no wind. (Spring is good.) Best on low tide. This is when youll get the best and biggest barrels. On superlow it turns into a mutant slab which gets dangerous. Breaks predominantly right but left too over a shallow volcanic rock reef. (Which hurts when you hit it.)
Takes a pretty long paddle to get there and local fisherman have reported seeing many huge great whites in the area, so be careful and get out've there if you start getting a bad vibe. We've seen plenty of movement in the water.
Awsome. Seen guys out at Gerickes point (the left) but never out here. Bring a friend and watch out for sharks!!!
