cold, sharky, isolated as hell. dont have a boat, good luck. maybe you can get a helicopter or something. other than that i have never surfed here but I have heard tales of south swell waves bending around this sandbar ala "kirra esque" style. this surf spot is not for the faint of heart. if you dont know how to ride the tube then this is not the wave for you.

I dont know much but I do know that there is a good wave here. I have heard a few buddys talk about surfing this spot over the last couple years. you must have a boat to get out here. I think you can camp if you get a permit so it is actually probably worht doing that and seeing the place for a couple days.
weather changes here really quick, it can be sheet glass and blow to bits in 10 minutes but when there is a good south running this place is super sick. I read and article online a while back about slater surfing this place. Some young quicksilver team rider had some info on his blog about a surf sesh he had out here and slater was on the boat with him also. So Ia m pretty sure this place is legit.
I have heard that this place is just a great tube. it just stands up and bowls down the sandbar from takeoff to the end. It just slides along this sandbar really nicely. people are going to be pissed that this place is up on wannasurf but for what reason I dont know. Is anyone really going to go out and surf this place. Doubtful. but do some research about skunk point and you will evently find evidence of good surf. there are all kinds of photos on flickr and the like that have pictures of waves and guys with boards. good luck.
