Easily accessed and plenty of parking. It's best to paddle out on the right hand and make your way towards the rocks. It will save you getting beaten and give you time to time the sets (and keep your hair dry that little bit longer).
You can jump off the rocks but it's sketchy as.
It's a straight pig dog until the end. Where it closes out.
Walk back up the beach to paddle out again as the water gets pushed towards the rocks and sucks straight out into nastiness.
It very rarely works like the picture. Watch a big easterly storm swell and wait for the wind to swing e/se and it will fire for you.
It's well worth it when it's on as it's fast, hollow and will punish you. Enjoy it while it lasts as it will only last the day. The bay is so protected. Check google map for more info.
It's great for practicing your position in tubes, as depending on where you are on the beach, the size of the close outs change. Be warned it is close out central! The locals will tell you it's rubbish.... and it is.... except on those rare days...
