Drive to Batemans Bay. Go about 10 mins south along the road that goes down along the coast (not the 'inland' highway). It’s kinda easy to miss coz the bay itself isn’t very wide and its tucked away. Just find the cafe and there’s a sign that says 'Mosquito Bay'

The easiest take off spot is right next to this big submerged boulder because it sucks up and you can get onto the wave sweet. Out the back about 20 metres is also a take off spot but can get very shallow at low tide. On a small swell the wave kinda dies after a shortish (but good) ride but I'm guessing on a 8 foot swell it would go right through the bay. Opportunity for a barrel on the shallower inside section and heaps of room for turns.
Great starting wave when it is small but as soon as it hits over 1 metre it becomes steep and fast with lots of sections to hit.
It's a sweet generally uncrowded spot at the south coast. Cliffs at the sides of the bay. There’s an island about a kilometre offshore which is a grey nurse shark breeding ground (though I’ve never seen a shark out there). Gets cold in winter. Best pack a 4/3 steamer for July - September if you want to be warm but a 3/2 would do unless the air temp gets cold. On the other side of the bay there is also a mad left that only the boys up the road surf cause the rest of them are to pussy. it has numerous exposed rocks at low or mid tide and under water caves. only the local boys up the road surf it .
Beware, paddling up on the inside of a local will only result in pain.
Sick and uncrowded sometimes but when it does get crowded it is to hard to doge all the peole in the way as well as the rocks.
I've surfed and bodyboarded this spot for 7 years and it is still high on my priority list.

- This wave can ok on the right swell direction + a mid tide, but there are deffo better ones around, also the fishos clean their catch at the boat ramp so watch out for noahs!

seriously bruuuuuuuuuu - judgin from the pics u can't tell a good wave from a bad one mate, a short but good ride isn't this spot, a short but good ride is takin off at suck rock, gettin pitted for 3 seconds and gettin a spray at the end........this doesn't even classify as a bad wave, its a chop, its not barrelin in the pics, there's no power and it doesn't even look ridable and the only positive thing, is there's no crowd but im sure theres a fuckin good explanation for that

davo - Is this a joke the wave isnt very good and it needs a massive swell to break. Also theres many good ones which break around it do dont come here or people will laugh as its small and shitty.
