 Additional Information

great tube on the right hander, the left is longer but not as hollow.

I winter time the river at smiths opens and changes the sand movements. This creates good banks, but also renders the reef inactive. luckily the beachies are great!

awesome wave - beautiful wave yet very very steep on swells over 2.5m. I seen this place on fire and its really good. worth a weekend trip down from perth. Also its alternate name is not Nachos, nachos is a reef/sand break down the beach and needs a 3m swell to be any good.
