Variety and consistency, semi-secret isolated spot, no crowds in winter. Headland with waves to 2-7 feet on either side, one (better) longish right hand point/beach break on the north side, longish left hand point/beach break on the south side, plus yet another long right point break (fun wave 3-6 feet) just two headlands north. Good variety for small area, with long workable walls, rare barrels, and occassionally excellent rip set up on both sides of headland can make little or no paddle to get out the back, even when big. Can be 6-7 feet, perfect, and empty in mid winter.
Its all about the good vibes on the Far South Coast of NSW. Life revolves around the ocean and the bush. Surf if the waves are up, fish when the fish are on. Spearing is mandatory to see the spectacular rocks and reefs. Lobsters are usually on the menu.
Secret spot needs to stay secret to the people all about good vibes
