Park in the many carparks provided. take around a 6'2 to a 6'8, some of the spots are fast hollow waves, others are great for beginners
pretty laid back, geat views of the bluff, unreal to surf when it is 6-10ft!
a classic wave, heaps of different breaks to choose from, some spots work better than others depending on the swell size

13th - 13th can be really good.
beacon is really hollow. gulfies picks up the most swell. and further down towards the bluff is the place to go for liders. with some shallow reefs.
can get really crowded in summer. but most of the ppl out dont catch the waves anyway.
there are heapls of breaks to choose from.
but when onshore is usually pretty bad. and the locals are all really nice. no problems at all
