When Suck-Outs is as busy as the local mall, it's worth the paddle north to see how Tippers is breaking. Gentle wave over a flat reef, best for longboarding. On sluggish swells it can be a difficult wave to catch, i.e. doesn't quite break when you need it to. Fun, low-stress wave all the way to head-high conditions, can wall up an close out any bigger.
Great spot to surf if you have several hours to relax and enjoy nature. Reserve your campsite nearby and surf off and on all day.
Generally not as good a wave as Cardiff Reef or Suck-Outs, but the lack of crowds means you can cherry-pick the good ones.
