Anther loooong lefthand reefbreak but looks more like a pointbreak setup. We counted around 30 pointbreaks while here last time, most probably never surfed..except by us! Awsome long ride. The bigger the swell, the better and longer it gets with some good hollow sections aswell.
No one around. Beautiful scenery. Could be sharky but when you see the wave you wont care. If you can get here you wont be dissapointed. Picks up alot of swell. Gotta have a 4x4 out here and come well prepared.
The water is freeeeeezing cold all year round. So much potential along this stretch of coast. We have seen many spots ranging from all types of waves: beachies, shoreys, reef breaks, many point breaks etc. We know of and have surfed roughly 10 spots but there is so much that we hav'nt seen too. Next time we come we'l be exploring these spots more thoroughly.

Huh? - Photo 1 says it's taken from coastal road, funny since its in the middle of nowhere with no access except 4x4 and permits...apparently. Oh look there's some green grass and stones everywhere considering its all sand with solid rock in that area.
