It is a pretty narly wave and very shallow. I suggest you only surf it if you are experienced because it sucks dry and is quite sharp.
It is a very quite spot. The wave is very swallow and when you get to far out on the flat doing a bottom turn your fins will hit the bottom and you will eat it bad.
Its a wave that is hard to access and i would I wouldent bother unless you really had a thing for this wave. There is better waves near by which are alot easier to access

- beagles is sik. i surf there regulary and love it. i have seen a few sharks out there but when your near the beach dont worry bout em. they dont really bother goin in that close with all the food further out to sea and pengoes. it is alot better then any of the other breaks in the area and shitloads less people aswell. its definately woth surfing even if it doesnt have banks because theres a lot less people than any where else in west oz

very fickle - like that smartarse you went to school with (heaps of potential but never lives up to it) not a bad place to get away from the crowds though. as for noahs, been out there heaps and never seen any, doesn't mean they're not there though. enjoy...
