 Additional Information

Saltwater, is able to hold up to 4 metres, but very good in 1.5 to 2 metre. The take-off varies according to swell size and direction over large, sand-covered boulders. On bigger days the wave starts further out, jacking take-off followed by a bowling inside section before swinging towards the beach in a series of cut back sections. It loses out in the dredging shore break on the beach. On big days this shore break becomes a massive rip smashing with great force against the rocks. It works on all tides, butis hollower, and better, at lower tides. Jumping from the point is usually the way to go, but if you mistime things you will face a whirlpool ride over the razor sharp, barnacle encrusted rocks on the point.

This is a magic little right hand point break, tucked away right near the Victorian border. In winter months (may-sep) there is virtually nobody there, and so damn cold (full steamer) it keeps the crowds down. In summer though it does get crowded, like the whole south coast of NSW. It is a magic little wave in a National Park, and breaks hollow, with long walls and occasional tubes, for about 100m+, not a very long point break, but handles some size (10 feet+), gets longer when bigger (about 150m), and is nice, fast and hollow. Best in big southeast swells, lower tides and south winds. Northeast swells might also be ok, by the look of it. It's also a beautiful spot.

General

This is a great spot, you can camp overnight for a small fee. The NSW National PArks and Wildlife Service look after bookings for the limited camp sites. No water or shops so bring all the gear you need. Don't surf alone since help is miles away.
