Week crowdFew surfers
leave your car on the mainland and the walk isnt too bad across the sand bar.the takeoff peak is small and you tend to go behind the peak so crowding can get bad. Needs high tide on all swells.consistant when everywhere else is flat.
Cant hold more than a 2m swell. Biggest it can get is chest maybe shoulder high on a super high
tide. Very fickle.
atmosphere is pretty quiet but the sea gulls are a nuicance.is good for a swim or a snorkel when there is no swell and there is a lot of fish because the whole island is a nature and marine reserve
i think that this spot is alright if you are bored of riding packed perth beaches.pity it cant hold more swell or this place would absolutly fire!!!!!if you come here dont come in to big groups because the A frame peak means you bachdoor both ways so it is limited to one good ride per wave.nice small wave reefy

Time to get outa there - whos bombie king these days ???
super high tide , any swell , the place rocks ..
never surfed there without losing skin..
stoked when the thruster came out , then my fins didnt drag on the bottom when i was in the barrel , like my single fin did ..
leaving your bag in the dunes was still dangerous , even in the 70s , find out your mums cut lunch has been scoffed by some bong tokin bay boy and replaced with a turd ...
nice place to hone some barrel riding skills as a grom , RIP Smithy , ex bombie bandit , got taken out by 2 whites at lefties in 2004..
enjoy it boys and lid riders ..
move on , West Oz is loaded with way better stuff than what the seagulls squabble over ...
