go to the scarborough beach area. Find the contacio pub/bar or find the street that says contacio. Humm well i dont think people want it to be that well known but its a sandbank thats heaps glassy, somewhere around the scabs/trigg area, work it out

well its a sandbank that can get good when it has real good banks, but normally the left shoulder can be makeable
its kool, and there isnt as many crowds as the breaks nearby even tho its just as good

To Wannasurf, From Sean - This is just silly...
Contacios is the pub and bar right? And yes, there is a beach down in front of it, but it shouldn't be given its' own spot and name, the wave sometimes breaks all the way from infront of the Scarborough life guarding tower all the way past there, so it's not unigue in it's own way, take it off.
Just like the Superbanks (100 classes below of coarse) it breaks all the way across...simply call it: Scarborough;)

yeow - yehh siik fun.. even anywhere between trigg n scabs is good. jus gotta find a nice lil bank all to yaself. any swell over like 1.5m on seabreeze scale is worth a look.. sets pick up heaps more on a high tide.
