 Access

Go down Chinamans Drive and go to the parking lot by the beach of the lagoon. There should be a dredging machine in the water on the other side of the lagoon. The sand-bar is 20 or so metres closer to you than the dredging machine. If you can see a sand bar, just head to that.

 Additional Information

The only time I got to ride it was when Jakes Point was going crazy (strong wind, big swell). I gave up hope and went to Chinamans beach. I brought the longboard down the beach and paddled around for fun until I noticed white water at a shallow sand bar. Gave it a go and it gave me a pretty long, fun, straight ride. Longboards only (impossible for short boards). Park in the main car park. Go on a day of bigger swell, with strong winds - the wave needs serious push to be able to break.

Atmosphere

If people see you surfing it, they will be surprised - good for beginners too. No one if ever there so go for it if it's breaking or Jakes is too extreme for you.

It's fun to introduce people to surfing that have never surfed before.
