Week crowdFew surfers
It's next to Crunchies. Park the car and head out. Best to walk out off the rocks and jump(easy). It's a short paddle to the lineup. It has a small takeoff zone next to or over a shallow flat rock, it's fairly competitive with all the crew.
I don't think it's that good a wave but some may argue differently. It seems a bit short fattening out too quick. Though at a solid 4-5ft plus it can throw out a pretty mean tube. It rarely gets bigger than 6ft though.
Some people surf the left off the peak now due to crowding issues and a left about 200m south also. I don't usually surf here much because it's a little too aggressive for a mellow surf, too much jostling over the suck rock.
Rarely gets to 3 or 4m but its unreal when it does. Picks up the most swell in the bay. It is best on the high tide on a small to moderate swell with a light NW being direct offshore. On a big swell the mid to low tide goes off.This when its working is an awesome wave. It can break from out the back through to Crunchies. On big days it sucks right out over the reef. Its not called suicide pont for no reason. believe me I ve surfed it 8ft and its a flyer!!
