park car in carpark just above spot. walk out on ledge off reef and jump from their into the water.nice wave when small, soft. when big goes off, big and pushy.

Atmosphere

Rocks and reef can be a big hazard, and getting in and out of the water can be a struggle, but yopu can generally just jump off the reef on the shore. Sometimes youll have to dodge rocks and reef poking out of the water when ur catchin a wave.Mostly surfed by locals though lots of randoms are appearing nowdays. locals are friendly wont give ya a hard time. sitting in the water paciently waiting for a set, at the top of the stairs someone whistles and shouts "out the back!". everyone looks out the back and you can see a hump in the water everyone paddles but few paddle for it. barrels like hell on the ledgy reef!

There's a lot of new guys - There a lot of new guys surfing tom's these day. some of the old crew call them blowfly's only come out when the surf is good and clean but your will not see them when it's big, is better because they sit way inside on the reef and get court in the wrong place at the wrong time when the big sets come though which piss the old boy off big time. So if you not the best surf and its out of your leage and your freind try ang get you out there go some where else. Because all you do is two things get hurt and piss people off please take this in the nice"s way.There a lot more place you can surf without getting hurt and pissing people off. Some of this guy's will run you over and call you everything under the sun.
