Atmosphere

The locals here a pretty chilled, but have respect if there is some swell. It doesn't come too often so it can get pretty intense with a lot more people in the water. In summer there are heaps of kooks and clubbies. Bring your skatey, there's a sweet mini ramp next to the beach.

General

Its not worth a surf trip just for the waves, but the waves are good enough to keep you in shape for surfing other spots with more swell.

- Nieslon Park, not Nielsen's. My tip would be get in early and on half to high tide, before the local wind gets up and turns any clean swell to mush. Actually works as a right break as SE swell meets the southern rocky reef.
