 Access

Spot is directly behind the Sugar Shack Restaraunt on Elbow Cay. Patronizing the delicious Sugar Shack for Pre/Post Surf snacks will surely get you access at their beach crossover. mid to low tide is a very difficult reef walk, there is a small, deep sandy cove to the North and a small beach entry a couple hundred yards South that provide a channel and all-tide access, just a longer paddle. Several rental houses along that beach have access and there is semi-public access if you follow the beach road North from the Sugar Shack, take a right on a dirt track right before the last rental house as you are going up the Hill, and there is a small parking spot right at the Sandy Cove.

 Additional Information

Needs 5'+ swell to start breaking on the deeper reef. With Swell, fun easy to paddle into deep water walls, well offshore. Can be A-Framish w/, depending on Swell direction, either Lefts or Rights being better. No Crowds and not that popular a spot, since the more popular spots start to go off under similar conditions.

Some tempting, shapely little chest to head high waves will break on the inside in shallow water over sharp fire coral/urchin reef. The shallow reef makes it not worth it on smaller days

Atmosphere

It's the Bahamas! Beautiful Beach w/ semi-secluded Cove on North End. Breaks well offshore so you have a view of a good bit of the Elbow Cay coast and can see the Surf spots Indicas , Japan's, and Rush Reef to the South.

General

Some random coral heads and occaisonal Supicious boils in the lineup prob/ deter people from surfing here and staying at the more established breaks. But in general, the relatively deep water and rolling nature of most of the sections of breaking wave eliminate these few Heads from being a Hazard. Unless, like any reef break, you get caught at the wrong spot at the wrong time. Just south of the south sandy access is a Slabby, Thick, and Impressive looking Right Reef Point that breaks off of what I think is the back side of Indica's. I would like to know what its called and if its been ridden.
