 Access

Take road about a kilometre before Cape Schanck Light House - I think it is Fingal Road. Walk down track to beach. Break can be seen from cliff top - there is also a point break for the big wave surfers off to the left which can get huge and is protected in the summer easterlies. Beach can be accessed by stairs.

 Additional Information

Bitch of a spot to get in and out of as the waves break directly onto rocks - currents are also locally quite strong. Do not attempt if you are not experienced and fit.

Atmosphere

The spot is located at the base of a 100 foot cliff. You are usually fucked from paddling when you hop out and the climb up can be the last straw!

happy to leave it unnamed - good spot...wrong name tides and directions but lets leave it as is.

Little known - Thank God this place doesnt cop the same amount of un qualified judgment as Little Noosa (AKA Pines). Lets keep it that way by not calling it by its correct name!

no title - This place has got some pretty heavy rips. It's a bit of a bitch.
