To surf cyclops you must be a highly experienced water athlete(surfer/bodyboarder). When starting at cyclops, i recomend taking the smaller sets, even though they are all a fucking slab of concrete. Most people pull into the wave from the shoulder, but if you are a CRAZY FUCKING MEGADETH charger, you can acid drop down the face of the wave. Always remember when surfing cyclops, be prepared to stack. You have to take a day trip from Esperance, and get out there by boat. Esperance is 6 hours drive from Perth. So, to get out there is a trek from mainland, so you will have to take a boat, but anyway, you probably won't find it.
Cyclops is the heaviest wave in OZ. To attempt this break you must be a very experienced water athlete (surfer/bodyboarder). Personally i have been knocked out, broken my collar bone and my right wrist at cyclops. I also have had 16 stitches in my head, and 20 on my leg from cyclops.
Crazy wave. Cyclops isn't for the faint hearted! It is featured in movement magazine, there you can see it's fury, even breaking Jackos back! If you are game enough to try to find this break to surf it, good luck ey!!
Cyclops is the most hyped least surfed wave in the world. It's extremely heavy with massive amounts of water unloading on shallow reef. Cyclops is definitely Australia’s heaviest wave to date.
