Week-end crowdFew surfers
- Rips / undertow
Spot breaks ok very very rarely, usually not worth the treck,
the car parks are bad as well because when u get out to walk around and see the "crappy" surf theres a good chance someone will try and break in as people are known to do this
Not worth it, unless your the keenest of keen surfers

Which Grassy Head is this page for ? - there is also a Grassy Head 5 mins from Scotts Head and it looks to me like to me like it has lots of potential, especially with a S/SE ground swell..(but hey i'm happy to for everyone to believe it's crap as i just moved here)
Grassy Head looks like it would not be as crowded as Scotts Head and middle head beach is another option but it looks very fickle.

Very hard and confusing - Well where do i start!
For one there are 2 grassy head's, the grassy head that there talking about here is hard to find, and the other one is kinda easy but still a trek, but the only problem is it aint any good, this beach however is OK but thats it, u turn into crescent head then u need to find a dirt road (the same road that takes u to plomer and other spots) its quiet a hike and there are no signs until your write at the beach, and there are plenty of breaks be4 this one anyways, u prob wont end up surfing this!
The other grassy head, is a crappy wave, first u need a 4wd to get there, then u need to treck around a huge hill, then jump off some scary rocks, and i have never seen it good and neither has anyone else, they dont actually class it as a surfing wave, as it rolls then goes to nothing then crashes on the rocks,
plus there are worst hazards,
sharks are known to this area as fisherman see them all the time! EEEKKK
I say crescent head, it goes off! or breaks further south, soon as u got past south west rocks heading north this is no swell as the jail blocks all the south swell for a massive amount of time, until about coffs harbour! so there south i say! port has some good waves as well!
