 Additional Information

Follow the track around from the car park and go straight ahead find a spot to jump off from. If it's really working( big) keep following the headland around the corner until you almost run out land.

You have to be willing to sit in close to the rocks if you want the better waves.

It's definitely is a great wave with plenty of long wall to work with, there is a fairly hollow section inside depends on how much sand has moved...sizable sections for carves, cutbacks and off the top speed.

Atmosphere

I have surfed this spot many times, from very small (low tide) 2/3 ft up to 8/10 ft. It is a very safe place to surf. The rocks can freak you out if you are not used to surfing in and around but you can avoid them by paddling out to the line up ( I wouldn't unless the tide is on your side or a boat) and by sitting out on the shoulder where you can get a second phase ride ( not nearly as good as from deeper inside).

mals - this place is packed with old farts on mals but if u go on a big day they shit them selves and just watch ya and if u go up to the very point of headland theres a break which i boog very short but heeps shallow but at least u get every wave to ur self

All Welcome - Great wave. Crowds are not that bad and most of us locals are really friendly. Plenty of waves to go around. Definitely worth stopping off for a surf on your way up or down the coast.
