Park on the Bundeena Road Lat. 34° 6'11.47"S Lon.151° 6'56.98"E and walk in 45mins towards the east. Come out on the Coast Track at Lat. 34° 7'9.63"S, Lon.151° 7'44.53"E . Turn left head Northeast on the Coastal Track. At Lat.34° 7'3.66"S Lon.151° 8'0.79"E and head South East to Little Marley Beach. 5 Minute Paddle Out from the protected beach. The alternative is to walk in from Bundeena on the Coastal Track or Boat 30 Minutes from Port Hacking, Jetski is better like 10 minutes plus towing in is great here on a big swell.
This is a great short sharp right that give a decent amount of time in the green room on its day but watch the rock coming out of the water at the end of the ride on the corner of the Bay. It is virtually un-surfed 360 days a year with only a handful of Garie Boardriders and Bundeena local to have surfed it.
I won't do the walk again. Going down is OK coming back after a long surf is the pits. I will only go in on a Jetski.

Barrels memories 1976 - I surfed here a bunch in 1976, in fact it ended up being one of my most memorable spots cause nobody new about it or surfed it. The best way is to hike in and camp overnight. Mid to high tide only, but a slabby barrel. One time I tore open my knee and the hike out was way gnarly. I caught it at three to six feet usually but 76 enjoyed the biggest year in 20 years so there were some hairball days. One spooky day a giant eel floated by with a gigantic shark bite in it. Killer adventures.....
