pretty awesome - my friend and i once came to blacksmith and were tired of the 4 metre rides on the 1 foot swell and we saw this place up at bit further so we checked it out. When we got there it was 3-4 foot clean sets, some of the fastest barrels i had ever seen, we gave it a go. When you take the drop the wave grows in height so much and it is really steep. one of them took me out and it was the most powerful wave i had ever seen. it just pinned me down all the way to shore. not a very long ride though. Try this place out really helps you learn some new techniques!!!

protected - this beach is normally good on a big south swell when a lot of the other beaches in newcastle are turned into giant washing machines, because it is well protected. relatively protected from wind aswell making it an option on breezy days
