 Additional Information

Just get out there and take off deep if its makeable and your probably get shacked but u might not make it out most times but sometimes you may. Or go the closeouts and hit a chunky thick lip and get launched. Takes a while to learn how to surf this properly on smaller days you have to take off right in and behind the wall. not too good if ya stack it. You normally have to wait around a while until a set comes through. They normally come every 10 mins on a 2-3m swell.

Atmosphere

Everyone in bunbury loves The Bay and Sidies but The Groyne has always been my favourite cause one day it was one of the biggest cleanest days i've ever surfed in bunbury and it was pretty hollow. Since then i've always thought its Bunbury's heaviest wave when its on and yeah its fucking sick! Its pretty inconsistant break but when the banks have built up its pretty gnarly.

General

Its a bit underated cause The Bays always been the top spot but hopefully this winter
people will see how good it really is wen its working. this spot is joy. is a bit protected so holds up nicely when other places are crap. the wave is joy if ya willing to take off on the left hand side of the rocks. its a rush when ya zoom within a metre of the rocks while gettin barreled. gets nice and big with a large swell, nice 1.5-2 metre high barrel

Seaweed eye infection - All the groyne does these days is collect seaweed. I recomend you bring down your shovel as if you put some around the roses at home they will be blooming in no time. Although if your thinking of going for a swim make sure you wear goggles
