Surf at the north end... less rocks better swell. There is a rock pool at the southern end and it’s where the punters go so it best to stay away from there, plus the swell’s pretty shotty. If you park at the entrance to Kenny walk its easiest. It’s where the locals park so don’t be stupid, Port’s pretty chill but if your a knob tourist you can invoke localism on yourself.
There is a car park right in front of the point, the beach break also gets good. The car park gets crowded with picnickers so getting a park gets hard sometimes.
There are a few spots to get out, just watch the locals for the best spot to get, make sure you pay them respect and don’t go straight to the peak and you will get your fair share of waves.
It’s a sick spot when it’s on, usually in winter there’s a few bits of reef that it sucks up on so watch out!

sam bennett - Has anyone surfed that massive reef about 500m directly out of the lagoon? it breaks sick but pretty inconsistant. Some fellah sponsored by empire said hes surfed it and has a picture on facebook( which i saw) but im pretty sure hes talkin shit. it looks similar though. So anyone know? Worth the hour long paddle

Shark bite - I just read on the internet that a body boarder was bit on the foot at Shelly Beach. He is expected to use his foot again. Is this the place where it happened?
