 Additional Information

On its day, its a long wally left hander that joins with a right coming the other way (at the end).

Also name affectionately 'malvalon' due to the large number of mal riders who surf here.

Its fickle, but if you do catch it on, its worth its weight in gold. You need a large SW swell and SE winds. The bigger the swell the better.

Gearies its Cousin, needs even more swell, but when its working is better than Avalon

best conditions - surfed this place consistently for 15 years ..
best conditions that i enjoyed are medium swell with a high tide , then it stands up on the inside and races down the point ..
low tide sees it roll onto the reef with no wall unless it huge and you start surfing another section of reef further out, then it can connect up with the bay ..
i think the cut totally stuffed it ..
on the outgoing tide it breaks up the swell and bends it back towards the rock wall , all the boat traffic in and out reaks havoc as well ..
gets artificially insane around easter each year after the cut has been dredged and there is sand covering the whole reef ..
if you wanna score it good , hit it on the first easter swells before all the sand gets washed away ...

regards
BERT

Starts working at 3m.. holds up to 2m? - I'm assuming that whoever wrote this has the swells around the wrong way. Everytime I've surfed here its been different. Really nice vs low tide with head high close outs vs tiny fat summer waves. I wanna get out again but am not sure what the smallest swell is that it'll work on in summer. A 3m swell here in winter can get pretty interesting, but the chance of that in summer is unlikely.
Can anyone shed some light on how much swell I need to make the drive worth while? I don't need big waves, just a wave.
Thanks.

depends on your point of view - Surfed the place off and on for 40 years (from late 60’s). When it’s big it’s the best in Mandurah (along with gearies when that breaks from shark pit on). The groynes at the cut do not make a difference, it’s always broken on the reefs and has sliced and diced many a man. We just don’t get the swell anymore, possibly part of the climate change deal.

A big swell on a dropping tide will see it get hollower and faster until the exposed reef scares you out of the water. The rest of the time it’s just a fun long wave that gets fat and slow as the tide rises.

There are a couple of breaks when it’s smaller and most of the Mal Men don’t ride the actual point as much. If you go for it and take the inside you will beat them every time. Never go near it on the weekend and it’s packed to the gills, if you have 4x4 head down to Tims Thicket, get on the beach and head ½ a klick south for lees crowd. Or just blow on south to Yals – Margaret area.

No I am not a Mal Man, just a grey haired old kneeboarder...
