suited for mal riders... no good for a short board. Lots of swell needed for it to break, and look out for the tendancy for 'party waves', as in summer on a good day it will get crowded. make sure it is low tide, this is the spot when lorne is crowded on the point
When this is working however, you can probly find a much bigger and more powerful wave in the area... but can be protected from some winds.This rarely works but when it does you will be treated. Usually rides are of 400m from the point to the boat ramp, if this spot is working bells will be 12 foot plus or score it on an easterly swell

Hidden gem - Yes, this a good spot , all the way between Gabo's and point roadknight can have good banks on small swells and a northerly wind. I have put all the details about this spot under the name Back Point but I believe that some people call it "Locals", but you call it what you like.

- Roadknight is a pissy wave not even good enough for mals, great for teaching your kids to surf. The real surf spot out there is directly behind the the carpark across the sandunes on a small to medium swell with a north wind, when the sands right it can get quite good banks and not many people look at it.
