Park your car in the carpark next to the biketrack and walk down the hill and jump of the rocks.. dont pull out or u will get a face full of rock
This is one of the most perfect, all-time, barrelling rights in the world. locals will bash the p*** out of u if u look at them. Breaks in any swell although from 1 to 5ft is good for beginners. 6ft and above hell paddle, long rides
Compared to Austinmer it is very long and good. There are lots of small reef sharks and fish. Watch out for the sea urchins when your getting in and out. poor atmosphere. mainly locals dropping in on bodyboarders and younger lads (grommits)

Georgia Boy - Surfed Sandon Yesterday. People who speak of localism either don't know how to surf or snake people cuz I was out there on the peak and everyone was friendly. Super crowded though on a Wednesday mid morning. Still caught some bombing rights! Power that will sneak up on you for sure. Australia is AMAZING!!

Sandon: Surf it before you die!! - Us Sandon locals are pretty relaxed. Don't believe everything you here. We are not agressive and we do not beat people up. As for the wave, it may be the one giving you a flogging on a big day. Sandon is an epic wave and really consistent. If you are travelling up or down the coast, it is a must surf spot. There are plenty of waves to go around, just don't snake anyone and you will be alright. See you out there!!
