Park your car at the end of Cutler rd balgowlah where there is a carpark. Follow the track heading south. Or paddle over the shark pit across from Balmoral beach.
Stick to the wave as it usually fills into deep water quickly, however good sections are out there.
Really not that many good surfers surf it as when it breaks it has to be massive on the outer beaches, so they usualy go to a more hectic joint. Some wave skis and paddle boards come out here when its working, although most people just go Balmoral as its easier and they normally sit wide.
Nice spot, good for a little paddle when all other beaches are maxed out.
