park in the fish heads car park. There is a fun left and right that breaks off the rutter of the sunken ship as-well as a right that breaks of the ships boiler. the rutter does hold a decent swell bull the boiler hold a bigger swell. The barrels at the boiler on its day are like caves and can be almond and beautiful as-well as square and mutant.
Can have really good vibes when its going off but is normally kook land
It is a very fun wave but is spoit by the amount of kooks that chose to surf there and as a local please don't come to Byron and hassle us because you will end up getting bashed up.

Looking for Paola - I am looking for a girl I met in Bali. She lives in Byron Bay. I believe her family lived in Chile. I know she was a vet in Chile. Anyone know her.

monkeys arse. - The wreck can be a pretty decent surf spot, but only when its pumping. Main beach tends to draw in back packers who have just scored themselves a board and walk to the beach thinking they can paddle out anywhere. Consequently it can get pretty packed and tempers can flare up real quick. The Pass is the same, super nice break (when there's swell)but generally too busy on a weekend. In my opinion tallows/broken head (Cape Byron headland) is a great surf spot, it can get pretty gnarley and it's definately not for beginners, so at least there arn't any back packers cramming the line up. If your'e prepared for a little drive then Lennox heads is definately the way forward. Some awsome breaks (and cool locals)
