general information

A very fickle yet awesome wave. It break in the entrance to the Merimbula Lake and it takes a huge southeast swell to awaken it. Once up and working it will dish up very long and changeable rides including deep barrel and bashable lip sections. A wind from the northern quarter is preferable to be offshore and it does get super busy when working.

Longer boats are coming to win us!
look at the picture, you can see a well defined bar and opening channel...two types of boat are dangerous here. The ones who gun through going in or out and the guy who chums out the back two days after the annual white pointer visit. Both have been warned by water police on surfers behalf, next are the PWC guys who have to show their expensive vessel between the bar and the wharf noise no surf or tow in just posing. End of whinge...if you are passing through to Vic. look for the petition to save Bastion Point remember if you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem
