Thommos - Thommos, despite being a reef point break is highly dependent on sand movement patterns between it and Sharky to influence how big it can hold and how down-the-line the ride is (vs cutback city in the mid-section).
It typically works best in pure NE cyclone swells, where 6-12ft is its better size range for quality - although you can get a good sneaky session on a SE swell when theres a westerly wind.
The deeper you take off at Thommos the better the reward for down-the-line waves - you are just more likely to cop sets on the head - a true riskreward option.
Depending on the sand banks between Thommos and Sharky rights the inside section can work in small NE swells.
On its day rides are 250-ish m.
There are a couple of take-off zones that spread the pack out, and these will be in or out of play depending on how NE or E the swell is.
