Big wave spot. Massive sets roll in off Bass Stait about 1.5km out and break and reform right into the beach. Flat in between waves and generally 1-200m between waves.

Need SW or West for proper wave riding (side/onshore). To gusty side/offshore. Spring is best time for these winds. Need strong SW which happens from September through to December. Can blow at other times but not as reliable.
