 Additional Information

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.

Atmosphere

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!

First Surf - I had just moved to the Eyre peninsula for work and was mainly surfing the southern reefs like Flatrock, Monument and Sheringa but they were a 3 hour drive. After a solid session at Flatrock I was driving home along the Lincoln Hwy and saw white wate
