general information

Moving west from Beacon along Thirteenth Beach, the next break is Sign Posts. ‘Signies’ isn’t one specific break, but rather a stretch of beach with shifting sand banks. The waves here are smaller and considerably weaker than the waves at Beacon and The Hole. The tame nature of the surf makes this stretch popular with long-boarders and beginners.

The waves peel left and right offering rides of up to 50m. The quality of the wave depends on the sand banks at the time. If the wind is offshore, there’s usually something surfable down here.

While the surf at Sign Posts is smaller than that further up the beach to the east, it doesn’t mean it can’t get big here. When the swell is up, these breaks become dangerous for the inexperienced. The big swell is good news for the seasoned surfer though, as the surf can get really good down here at these times.

Both Sign Posts and Clubbies (the next break to the west) have car parks and stairs to the beach.
