watch out for chnging rock formations at the southern end, this area is only reccomended to fairly experienced surfers.
A rare gem of a wave in australia. Boomerang, whilst not as good as its cousins further north, is still a very consistent break. it offers a poit break like setup at the southern end over a rocky reef. all the way long the beach there are great banks providing some epic beachies on the right winds. at the northern end there is a large headland protecting it from the summer nor-easters, this is the only spot in the area to offer this unique capability. overall boomerang is a great beach offering some class waves.
One of the great places in Oz. I have had some of the best surfs of my life here.
although i am only young i have surfed surf all of the east coasts great waves and boomerang certainly rates up there as one of the best, i would reccomend every surfer gives this great beach a go

It's quite good but... - Keep an eye out for sharks, you wouldn't find me out there on a day after rain!

epic - boomers is probably one of the best spots in the area. its open to so many swells its insane. i can always rely on it to have some quality waves, which is good since i live in sydney where the waves are as inconsistent as a motherfucker. if a se wind is blowing, you're fucked, expect some mushy-arse slop cos thats all you'll be surfing. another place in the are i recommend is a beach called seven mile. totally uncrowded, and a whole bunch of peaks that seem to go on and on (can get a bit sharky!).
