A few miles south of Old Bar is the right hand point surf of Saltwater.First went there in 1966 and it was a bumpy dirt goat track to the beach.The point was blown out so we surfed the back beach where summer the north wind blows off shore. This is mainly a winter wave needing a strong south swell and sw wind.When good it gets crowded with surfers coming from Newcastle to sample its perfection. Long rides are possible here with tubie sections and open faces for radical cut backs and re- entries.
