Go through the golf course in Flinders. You will see it breaking in the distance. It's a fair walk out. Can only walk out at low tide, on the high get a jet ski or boat out or paddle out if you're that stupid.

Great spot for big wave surfing or tow-in action. Better in the winter months with bigger swells and winds. Sharks can also be a problem. This is for all the Flinders region as the nobbies is just across the bay.
Only for big wave surfing and tow-ins. Hardly anyone goes out so no need to worry about drop ins but make sure you are with someone. Can be a scary spot when there is a huge swell.
Only for the experienced or stupid. Great spot when working. Don't bother surfing Meanos, Big Left or Mexicos, this is the place to go. Works on good SW swells and a light N-NE wind, can also be good on NW, maybe a west wind.

- Just wondering if a spot that I sometimes surf is the one you're referring to. Doesn't make a difference to me what it's called (I know it by another name obviously).

- Is the Rye Sunset at the spot where the path on the way in takes you in a westerly direction along a wire fence?
