- Rips / undertow
The locals are pretty friendly down hear so be nice. In other words don't drop in on anyone.
Please for mine and a lot of local sakes. Don't bring your longboard and/or mal or I'll have to drop in on you, every time you try to pull into one of these epic barrels. But seriously it's not a longboard wave!
In a nutshell this wave rips!!! And if you come here and find yourself in a sick stand up barrel, don't be suprised. Just cold!!!

it's a mirage - you're all barking up the wrong tree. bancoora is a fickle, moody beast that doesn't break often enough to get a rating. she has disappointed me many times - go to winki - that picture was taken when uranus lined up with neptune on the fourth full moon of a leap year when the Queen last visited melbourne.

Bancoora rocks! - Bancoora rocks! The point is epic on it's day (saw a longboarder get shacked there yesterday) and the beachies always have a good bank or two. I always check here before 13th if the swell is on, good waves without crowds, gotta love that in this part of the world.

wrong??? - Why pretend you know your Sh*t when you clearly don't.
Bancoora and Brimlea are practically joined at the hip. Closer to torquay would be Impossible or Fisho's...
