general information

A much softer reef break compared to all the others in Shellharbour, despite its name. This spot has an A-frame peak setup with a short left and a longer right. It's an easy and short dry hair paddle out to the peak, which will be very busy at weekends with longboarders. Parking is right above the break in the small and very bumpy carpark, don't come tearing into the carpark - you will loose your exhaust pipe!!
