Anchor Point Spot Guide

About Anchor Point

A medium to large, long period NW swell is what’s needed to light-up this world-class right, first surfed by Aussies in the 1960’s. From the steep take-off at the outside peak, a seemingly endless succession of speed walls and cutback hooks present themselves. Occasional emerald green rooms appear on the sandy sections down the point. It’s easier to come in at one of the coves and walk back to jump off at the end between sets. Works on all but high tides, unless it’s huge, which is when it may be possible to ride back to Tarhazoute.

Always crowded, especially when small , but the crowd spreads as length of ride and the current increases with size.
