Week-end crowdFew surfers
- Rips / undertow
Car park behind dunes. Theres a hollow left that gets real shallow as the tide drops, and a more wally right with hollow sections. Theres a good rip between the breaks to paddle out through.
A good reef to start out on. The green room has a nice view.
What can I say. Chilled out, no hastle desert break. I was only going to stop for 2/3 days but the place was so chilled, I was there 3 weeks and surfed most days. I only hit the bottom a few times.
Because the line up is so empty in the day you will get loads of waves, if a swell is running.
Go check it out.

Mals - I was here for 4 days just recently, every day i checked this break. CROWDED AS ****
waves were ankle high with 7 mals out. it was ridiculous. Definitely would not recommend coming to exmouth if your only going just for the surf. Save a few hundred kms and go to tombstones

Too many Mals - The one problem with Dunes is all the bloody Mal riders who think they have right of way on every wave!!! Just because you can get on the wave further out doesn't mean you have right of way!!
