The Womb is a short but punchy wave that often attracts boggie boarders, but also has plenty to offer stand ups with balls of steel. The take off pitches you straight into the barrel, so no lazy stand ups here. Once your up, you're treated to a relatively short and intense barrel section that may spit you out, or alternatively, will meet with the wave that breaks the opposite way, forcing you to pull out or get nailed in the tube. Some amazing barrels can be had here on clean days with the break starting to really turn on above head height. This spot can be dangerous though, with more than one pro surfer needing to visit hospital after sampling the innards of this beast.
The vibe at the Womb is generally friendly, even between boogie boarders and surfers. But as always, the locals know their spot, and due respect is needed.
This spot is an interesting variation on Left Handers, which is situated about 500 metres north of the Womb, and you'll sometimes see a surfer or two come from the Gracetown side to try something a little heavier. Can be quite a photogenic wave on it's day.
