The Bay can accommodate swells upto 12-15ft in size. Usually you choose the Bay due to its favorable wind directions and protected swell. The North end of the Bay needs a big (5ft+) south/south-easterly swell to work well. The middle of the Bay can produce excellent waves through most swell directions and sizes. The far south of the Bay is more open and holds big open northerly swells.\r\n\r\nThe Carrs reef in the midde of the Bay produces a left and a right that can hold swell upto 10ft easily and can result in quality 150 yard rides.\r\n\r\nAlways try and get the central to north end of the Bay on the pushing or high tide, the banks are better an the swell gets into the beach over the reefs more easily.\r\n\r\nThe Carrs reefs need a high tide to work and soon become exposed about an hour and a half after high.
