Trigg Point Spot Guide

About Trigg Point

This is the closest Perth's wave-starved surfers have to a pointbreak - and even then it's more of a sandbank that goes both left and right with some rocks leading out on the north end. Perth's swell-destroying continental shelf kills off most of the power before it hits the beach, but the banks here still give you a half-decent ride.
