Alex surf club - this spot is a little obvious but on the left of the surf club at alex heads there is a great break i have a had some really good surfs there its aweomse. It has a few rocks around and it working on any tide. it only nedds 2-3ft of clean swell to be really good peace out

Alex - I have a house at Castawys beach and all there are closeouts.The place IS CRAP DONT GO THERE. Peace out

wankers - Jados and Jaden are both grommets who dont even surf at castaways....they surf sunshine beach and want people to surf somewhere else.Sunshine and peregian hold larger waves and are deeper and as a result dont close out like shallow castawayshave a look and you can easily see what i mean..it will be at least 25% smaller than everywhere else
