Do not face race the wave or else u will smash your board up hell bad on the rocks.
Bodyboarding is the better way to surf on big days as this breaks quite fast, but on average days its anyones go.
Get a group of friends, pack an esky and lunch and make a day with the beach to yourselves.
This spot is really good when it's big.

Fun wave - I just surfed this wave today, 50 people out at Alex, me and a mate at Deadmans for an hour. It is rocky out there and you have to pull out before getting caught out on the rocks. It is a reef break, doesn't have to be coral bottom to be a reef. It's not a hard wave, very similar to The kick at Collaroy in Sydney when the swells right.
