Hideaway

- Had a (apparently) rare session at Hideaway with perfect conditions and fun waves with max 3 guys in the water.  Don't count on the same if you go there, but if you hang around long enough you could get it the same.  Other days were how

Hideaway and Beachhouse - im staying at Beachhouse at the moment and i can say the location of Hideaway shown on the map is about 15 mins by car too far south. Havnt surfed it yet but will soon. Have been getting some fun waves at Beachouse thought. It is a very temperamental wave that offers great tubes only when the tide is perfect and the wind not too strong. It is a very short wave but on bodyboard you take off late by the time you hit bottom ur in the barrel and the are 98% makeable even with your eyes shut. Have had 4 sec tubes there which is amazing when you see its only about a 30 metre ride. Watch the sharp reef. Where springy to protect you vital regions as the cuts usually get infected.

Positive - Sick wave that pours on the goodness went it's ready. The backdoor is the best place of entry and highly makeable. The Hideaway nightly disco offers solid girly action too. Their usually bored and keen to hit the lagoon after a day of sun baking. Get involved, ask questions and tear in!

Would definitely turn on - Surfed there in mid March 09'. Paddled out to find 4 guys already there. It was .5-2ft on sets and very small. Very windy. Got abt 6 waves with the biggest producing enough power so I could get across the section. Looks like it might throw over with size and has a hook at the end. Long paddle abt 500-600 metres. Worth a try for sure.
