the spot only work sometimes a year ,mainly in december..most of the time when there is a cyclone, an anti cyclone or just a very big swell.. you can park your car right by the beach ,then you walk behind rock for about 50m till the point and then you jump in the water..if you dont know where to go because you cant see the point because it is behind houses and trees then just look at where the wave starts..anywayz...goodluck

taylors-point - I live on pereybere main beach and i have a perfect view of taylors-point.. It breaks for about 4 days+ like 3-5 times a year. The rocks are very dangerous but thats where the main waves are. If you are a kid like me__ im 13 i advise you not to go along because of bigger surfers who think there so good and because of the rocks. Last of all i live here and weve never seen a shark so don't worry-- the surfers try tricking you so you get out the water!

Dont even bother... - it can kinda work on a cyclone swell but that is still only once year if that. If thier is a cyclone swell hit the middle or left hand side of the bay on the left of Taylors Point/Point Azur (as known by the locals) for a better wave.

Faulty info - Your info on the spot is pretty off.Length of ride here is never, NEVER, over 50mts long, and that would be on a day where it would be at it,s best.SHARKS, you must be joking, unless you mean the ones on land.With more than 8people here the spot is crowded........ .
