This is a great place to surf although it can get pretty shallow and there may be a few kook drop ins in summer. It is both a left and a right and can be very difficult to find. There is not obvious sightings for it. However, once a set comes it will slab out of the water.
Its a big left hander if its working very deep reef unless your on the inside section usually a wall that crumbles but sometimes opens up. Best on the low tide so you can get that barrel.
Beatiful Place. Awesome option for when the surf is absolute crap over in Perth. Take a boat over there for a weekend in the summer holidays or whenever. It might get pretty big in winter, but summer is definately best time.
Awesome spot. Don't drop in on me if i'm there =]

- Starts working at 2.5-3m? At this size it already is pretty sick. 1.5-2m if there's enough west in the swell direction already gets some fun waves.
