Old Pier faces the north/north east. an excellent left hand point break on sand. When the North Coast is maxed out on a large NW swell head to the pier or on a 1.5m+ NE swell. People ride through the pier and easy access to find. come 3 hours after high tide.
Old pier has 2 main surf spots. On a big day the wave will break behind mermaids off a reef and peel all the way down the beach to the second section where most people would surf.The second section is surfed right next to rocky island and then surfed all the way through the pier. In summer the beach receives a lot more NE swells which is the best swell direction while in winter the sand shifts and Westerly are the prominent winter swells.Quite often old pier has offshore winds that are too strong which makes it really difficult to catch a wave.
Summer is generally the only crowded time of the year. Some days a head high NE groundswell role through without any forecast. Living here is an essential if you wanted to score pier all time.
