Atmosphere

Look out for the dive boats, they come out through the line up and they will hit you if you dont move. Show respect to the locals and you might get a wave if they don't feel like taking it. The locals make sure its very hostile for any tourists trying to get some sneaker sets.

General

It's pretty damn nice on low tide, getting super sucky and hollow. Get a big swell with nice banks and you could catch a workable bomb right through into the Bay, about 250-300m. Only problem is it gets way too crowded.

nice weekend - Well, I went to byron with some friends and it was supposed to be a lot bigger than what it was... i think thats because we were at the pass and not a more southerly facing beach which would have picked up more swell.  pretty huge crowds as you

the pass. - The pass is a fun dream like kind of wave. there is a rocky outcrop near the take off. where the wave will hit the shallow sand that builds up next to the take of section. you can pull into a tight sucky tube. hold your position tho put the gas on so you get enough speed to make it out of the first section. the wave can get quite fast but once youv made that first section an havnt ran over any kooks. the wave reels down the bank and it is one of the most fun shaped waves you will find on its day. tho its dependednt on the sandbanks. sometimes the banks are crap an the wave is crap sometimes the banks are epic the wave is epic. then the wave keeps peeling down for 100s of meters to a section called clarks. it can be a bit more easy going to surf down there. becouse the crowd is les intence. an the bank at clarks can be so fun just drane pipe barrels that go for so long your legs will feel like noodles an you will proberly gumby of the wave before the wave ends at main beach. anyways i live in the aria an surf the place a lot. just letting you know its really crowded, an dont drop in on locals or youl get smashed.
peace

- I was watching the surf at the pass on coastalwatch and it seems that the sand is gone! This is a very sad thing. I understand that the sandbanks at the pass have a cyclic nature. But how long do they take to return?
