About Fingal Head

The southern breakwall of the Tweed River can have some peaky lefts in NE swells and offers some summer wind respite, followed by average but uncrowded beachies all the way south to Fingal Head. This bouldery point relies on sand to fill in the gaps and seems to prefer a bit of N in the E swell. Rolling walls and shoulders when small, then gets hollow at headhigh before maxing out at about 10ft faces. Offshore is Cook Island where some slab reef action keeps the local lids happy.

Some local vibe when it's good which isn't very often. The long paddle to Cook is very, very sharky.
