 Additional Information

Cylinder is a really great wave, works in several distinct sections from the top of Deadmans Beach to Home Beach, down in front of the hotel. The prize bank is usually of the corner of Cylinder Headland itself. A primo wave can go from in front of the headland, through a screaming barrel section, then continue right down to in front of the pub, a ride of maybe 200m.
Has a hideous rip with a lot of south in the swell.

Atmosphere

The locals dont like you dropping in, (strangely enough)if you drop in once expect to get dropped in on all day long by all of the local crew. The local crew seldom get violent, but still will tell you exactly where it's at if you're a rude pig.

General

Ideally, you need east swell, south wind and the right sand build up - not an easy thing, but breaks like the old Kirra on its' day, with NO crowd over 6 foot. Yippee!

Cylinders inconsistent - I spend 3 weeks a year at straddie and not once have I ever seen it fire. It has a perfectly shaped bank but no swell.

Cyclone swell - i surfed a wave from deadmans to amity during the epic cyclone swell of jan 08. These kooks tried to follow me out but they just got swept into moreton bay. I saw the stupid bastards on tv getting rescued
