Similar to further up Brighton Beach, but with some big eddies and you get a nice right hander when the tide is high owing to the curve of South Shore.

General

Not too bad needs exploring, I have seen it on some days when it was smoking, and it looks very good. A consistent right Hander which is very unusual.

- Depends if you surf to look at your togs - or if you surf any wave because its there. As they say there is a difference between a tourist and a traveller - a tourist complains about everything thats not to his way of thinking and a traveller may never leave.

- Why surf "eddie's" when "lone pine" will be cranking!! Stop wasting space on this website.

Tow In - Some coots were out the other day, way out the back at Eddies trying tow-in looked like they weren't having a lot of luck - but it was a big enough SE just.... There is potential where Eddies meets the outwash from the Estuary 1 day eve year!!
