Long walk down the cliff really tires you when goin back up them. Works really good on big swell. Not many people surf here. Only the local families really go here and play in the shories.
This is a low tide wave, because when it's high tide it breaks to close to the rocks so you can maybe surf it at mid tide. Just park your car in the main car park the people are alright around here.
On a good day, heavyish take off with a fast wall and the occasional barrel potential, often gets sectiony and fat if the tide is too full or the swell not quite there. On lower tides the inside section gets very shallow but is still very surfable as long as you make the take-off.
Not much of a atmosphere because not much people surf here. You can sometimes have the spot to yourself. Works real well on a big swell and light N/NW wind. Can get pretty shallow on low tide. Also can get some good barrels.
Great spot doesn't get too crowded inless in school holidays or great day there, but the locals can get pretty firey (so dont get lippy). There are also some great beachies at surf beach on the left of the point they can hold swell to about 4 foot and can produce a mean left hander.
One of the spots on the island that can hold real size and usually the bigger the swell, the better the wave. On occasion it is possible to catch the wave from right outside through to the shorebreak though it needs some size for this.
Like many spots on the island, the odd white pointer is an ever-present concern, especially when the fishermen are throwing cray pots over the side 200m beyond the lineup.
Great spot when the swell is big. Not much people surf here, sharks can a problem here. Can find some dead seals and penguins on the beach every now and then.
Easy access means if it's on, there's usually quite a crew out. Vibe is usually friendly.

- I had a shark bump me at the point in March. Luckily I'd had a good session before exiting the water quicker than you can say brown wetsuit. My advice: If there's a bunch of birds diving on a baitball just offshore, look for another spot.
