This spot is very rearly surfed, it is a great break for towins when it gets over 8ft, also when its big it tends to bend around the corner and peel into pittwater, but even when the size is around 4-5 there is still a fun wave to be had. This wave starts as an a frame snd sucks up so dont take of to deep unless your willing to spend the night in hospital.
This spot is great fun but there can be alot of fisher man around you so watch out.
Overall great break, give it a go if your into towins.

wrong description at the top! - im a local to L.R and the person who wrote the description up the top is not 100% right.. Lighthouse out big swell breaks just off the left tip of the point. the wave can follow through and reform on the second reef(where it starts to bend around into pittwater) believe me i am a local. ive grown up watching and surfing it. ive seen it in all conditions. when only 2nd reef is breaking that means the swell isnt big enough for the real lighthouse rights to be working. IT BREAKS OFF THE TIP OF THE POINT! tow ins only out there!
