Take the short dirt track that turns off the Eyre Hwy about 5 k's north of Arno Bay. Can't miss the spot. There should be 2 reef set-ups right in front about 100 metres off shore.

Be patient, very fickle but when all conditions come together can be an awesome wave. Two reefs, the one straight out front is the best option. Mini 'shark island' like set up. Slab over very shaollow reef that barrels to the right. Doesn't get very big but when there is a clean long period swell, about 6 metres, pushing up the gulf there should be good 2-4 foot waves here. Needs a north west wind not too strong on a mid tide.
Need a bit of luck with this spot, if one condition, particularly the winds down the peninsula and the strength of the swell are not right you could waste your time, as I have found out. If everything comes together you could have some awesome little slabbing barrels all to yourself all day, as I have found out. GOOD LUCK!
About as uncrowded as you will get with the quality of wave. Do your homework first.
