The Knife is a left-hand point that breaks over the boulder reef on the northern side of Portifer bay. Requiring a spring high tide to break, it consists of generally fast, short and hollow left-handers breaking off or around the point. A fairly exposed spot, it picks up most available swell and can often produce 3-4 waves when Vazon is only 1-2ft. Generally known as a small wave spot as it starts to close out and get messy at around the 5-6ft mark and therefore is generally surfed on smaller swells during the spring and summer periods.
Generally okay, can get competitive when busy in the evenings and weekends.
On it's day this can be a really good fund wave, unfortunately when good it is also usually pretty crowded.

Vazon is crap!!!! - Vazon is for the longboarders and generaly helmets with a fear of rock's (with the exception of the reef on the odd occasion it's 5 ft+ and walling up to the beach). It rarely has any shape and on a high tide is unsurfable due to backwash. If there's bugger all swell Centers doesn't work or has every Mum&Dad Inc pro rider giving shite and dropping in on guy's that have surfed the place for over a decade (30 Dick "head" Brownings case).Keep it up guy's and you'll be Generation X living!
