Park your car on the headland carpark, you can check the surf from your drivers seat, and also see if the point is working as well as the bay.
There are 3 main areas to this beach, the point, which is lefts, at the north end of the beach, the clubhouse, near the north end, and the bay, near the south end.
The waves here are mainly spillers with workable ledges, they are not as sucky as some of the other beaches in the area, although when the tide and conditions are right, this beach barrels as well as any other.
The point is rocky, and is for the more experienced. the waves on the beach break a fair way out due to the headlands, you don't get too many shoreys here.
not a bad atmosphere, a lot of posers on this beach in summer, it is good because it is a sheltered beach, so when others in the area are wind blown, this beach remains calm
the main problem is the crowds and posers, they can get in the way. sadly there are also a few local tryhards appearing at the beach as of late, but if you surf well and mind your own business you will be fine.
not as laid back as Lakes beach, but sometimes it works better as the rides can be a little longer. this beach suits all surfcraft, and there are even numbers of Boogers and stand ups. you get the occasional goatboat and a fair amount of longboarders
during school holidays this beach gets a lot of inexperienced groms who are not interested in their surfing as much as being seen in the water, this gets frustrating. It is one of the most consistent areas on the Northern, Central Coast.
due to varying conditions it ranges. beginners and the experienced can have fun here depending on the day
generally it is fairly fun and safe, yet not as relaxing as some other local breaks due to the atmosphere of posers
