Off the tip of the Bouddi National Park is Box Head, a rare but totally epic left point able to produce rides up to 1500m along a sandbank that forms at the mouth of the Hawkesbury River. Sucky, vortexing barrels or long sectioning slashable walls, depending on the state of the sand, then a gruelling against the current paddle out. Land access after long walk from Hawke Head Drive car park in Bouddi or a very long and heavy paddle from Umina with raging rips and boat traffic so smart surfers from Sydney and the surrounding area reach the peak by boat. As a consequence, it is often crowded. Added to the sharks, currents, boats and jet-skiers, it can either be your best or worse surfing experience ever
