Its a boat trip, If you do the Witches Rock / Ollies point tour Im sure the guide will take you by the spot. Its fickle and Dangerous.
This wave is no joke, Do not charge this wave unless you have a lot of experience. there is no beach just cliffs and rocks, you can only go right, if you go left you will en up in rocks. You do not want to get cought in the inside. If you do you need to paddle to the right, otherwise you will end up in a big pinball machine with large jagged rocks and no where to go. This wave Peels perfectly right with a fast steep take off and a big tube behind it. The reef is really shallow If your not very accurate with your turns you need to pull out preety quick. On the inside the boulders start to expose, and you need to solum throuh them. Its a Hairy dangerous wave but a hell of a ride.
I have only surfed this spot once we saw it breaking on the way from ollies to witches. Ollies was 6-8ft and when we pulled up here it was 10-12+, No joke. The guide said it doesnt break very much.We must have been lucky. I dont really know if the name of this spot is Labyrinth , I never saw it in writing but thats the best we could make out of the guides English. This isnt a secret spot because most surfers that traval costa do the witches boat tour, And if its breakin you wont miss it, There was no one else in the line up, but right around the point there was at least 30 dudes out at Ollies. They all had to see it on the way out. This isnt a place you will have to worry about a bunch of barnos crowding the line up.

- Like the previous comments said. This wave is for real. Surfed it several times. I'm goofyfoot so very sketchy for me. First surfed it about 10 years ago with John Logan. It was called secret spot then. John Logan ownes this place. Never seen anyone charge this place like him. The description of this place was perfect.

Really fun wave! cont - Take off deep! A local claimed you could not make it. I sat deep because it had an angle that looked like a sling shot. It does just that. Take off deep and pull in. You will come out if you know what you are doing. If not, relax for the rock / cliff dance...
