 Additional Information

Flat days. On days when it's flat everyone on the Gold Coast ... do go to The Alley. There is always a wave there. On flat days, this place is an excellent longboard beach.

When the Swell is HUGE don't park in the car park on the beach. Also beware of some locals they are scary

When its small its a really fun wave. As it gets over 3-4 ft the current starts running. Best to paddle out from the beach to the south when its big. Watch the rocks though.

Make sure your car is locked & your keys are on you. Best access is jump off the keyhole which is on the northside of the rocks. However check the rip as if strong paddle out off the beach to the south of the rock. The rip here can be soul damaging as you are trying desperately to get to the take-off spot at times. When you get one its worth it though. Fitness here can be handy. The sweep can take you north but there are also waves to be had along this point/beach break. Can get out & run around several times when its good.If going to get into grief with the rocks it will only be when you first hit the water, after that you won't even give it a another thought. When its good you have to get out down the beach, walk back up & paddle across the creek. No big deal.

Atmosphere

Don't climb up elephant rock near the alley heaps of people get hurt on it.

Have had some of the best righthanders in my life here with some good mates.It can be a really long wave with varying sections that can keep you doing different turns all the way down the line.There is some old blokes that surf here so show some respect with a smile & not too much gun ho stuff. Usually enough waves here to all have a go.
