Drive to the southern side of barrack point in Shellharbour and look down below the cliffs. The wave is the first break down and there should be one big rock out of the water on the left hand side of the break.

 Additional Information

mini pipe is really fast in sections and tends to close out further down the line so dont get caught to deep for the barrel. Sit in the middle of the wave where it flattens or on the second section just behind the hollowest lip to get the best take off. parking the car is simple theres places to park your car on the streets at the top of barrack point and the streets near by have places to park. just walk down the path and over the rocks and your there.

Atmosphere

mini pipe is good when it works, it doesn't work that much, a good summer break when the 1.6 meter tides are around as it tends to drain out in winter. good barrels, really steep pits at times and others you can just slide into. the take off is everything at mini pipe if you stuff that you may as well abandon the wave early instead of getting a face full of rocks. the waves good for grommets, cozy little pits and not a very dangerous reef either. the wave cant hold that much swell so if the tides up and the winds off shore then its a place worth checking. just don't drop in when theres locals. when it gets big theres another left right next to it but it needs a good swell to even break the right way, only ever seen it super clean once.

General

its a great spot to learn how to surf really shallow reef breaks and also learn to hold the barrel. its one of my favorite waves when it works but the time that you get there is everything at low its not the best but at high you can get some awesome waves. its a pretty good wave.
