Turn off the pacific highway as if u r goin to Currumbin bird sanctuary and u will see the ocean the road goes left and then u will see a huge rock and the surf club u can surf left or right of them or the many good beach breaks along the Coollangatta side.

Best tide positionMid tide
Best tide movementRising tide
- Rips / undertow
- Shark protected
If it is going to be a kind tide avoid parking on the beach side of the car park or ya car will get wet. Really fun rippable wave but if u go on the alley side close to elephant rock the waves are hard to catch because there is a gutter strait after the wave breaks and causes the wave to die but if u can stay on it reforms again. Nice sand banks all the way down the Collangatta side of the rock.
This spot has a really relaxed atmosphere and you will probably end up chattin with another surfer. but in march the pilcheds head north and the sharks followed i was down there in march this year and there were 8 schools of pilcheds went through and when i got home i saw i tv that there were actually tiger sharks chasin then but ive never seen a shark out there.
Great surf with a relaxed laid back attitude at 1/4 the crowd of snapper.
