About Crackneck

At the end of some typical Aussie flat shelf strata is Crackneck, a secluded, fast-breaking, lefthand reef for the more adventurous surfers. It works best with NE-E swells and from low to mid tide, plus there’s a short, shallow right for the suicidal! Check from the Hilltop St lookout south of Bateau Bay.

Often crowded because it is only medium consistency. Experts only.

go to Hilltop st car park and walk down
