On good days the bank infront of the kiosk near the south end of the beach goes off. It is a very fast, hollow, lefthand wave but gets very crowded. Another good spot is just south of Cables called Tincans. In a NW swell this bank has excellent righthanders and no crowds! Don't go when the winds are westerly you will get caught by rips and it is very difficult to paddel out with the southerly undertows. If you want to see how it is check out the cottesloe cam and almost double the size.
The atmosphere is calm and relaxed. Their are tons of old mal riders but i've learned to live with it. Esky liders don't bother in wa because you will cop some mad vefrbal abuse.My favourite spot is Tincans. It is always a bit smaller, not as fast but way more fun.
fun for begginers.Leighton is an extremely fun wave with rampy and hollow sections!
