 Access

Get to Innes National Park, you can ask at Rhino's head tavern for directions, or simply drive into the park and keep driving until you reach a turnoff for a campground called surfers (all important turnoffs are signposted) don't be fooled by the turnoff before called Pondilowie Bay, this is for boat access, not the break. Park the car in the car park, or camp. Reach the break by taking the path to the beach, after a 500m walk it should be breaking directly in front of the boardwalk.

 Additional Information

Paddle out either side of the reef, if it is big only the right should be working. Also watch out for the shore break. Wave has the best form when not affected by tide movement, and after a "summerpack" sand formation on the beach.

Atmosphere

Always one of the first spots to check when rocking up to yorkes. The campsite can get a bit feral during holiday periods. If it is too crowded i sometimes head up the beach to Richards. I have heard stories about 8ft days going off (but check the swell map).
