Its the break in front of the Golf course, 2nd bay over from Rest bay if heading towards Sker. Also breaks next to ledges (Classic left handed reef). Get there easily by foot on the path or on the beach.

Best to surf just about 2hrs to an hr from high tide as has nice little sandbars. Does get hollow too.
If you want to get away from everone come here rather than rest or if yr more experienced go to ledges.

i agree - the spot is packed with "hardcore" surfers who don't have a care for people just having fun.., i completely agreee with south wales ripper. i have seen the people in the ripcurl wetsuits and just snake, drop in on everyone and just cause havoc in the line up. i DO NOT RECOMMENT this spot to anyone. Also that ledges wave it the most unconsistant piece of crap i have ever surfed which breaks over sand .... pure close-out.

Turkey colonies - the fundamental difference between this place and rest bay is that the local cammels choose Rest Bay for the annual gathering when the crickets are rising.
