Discription of surf spot: Saltwater Creek, Australia

This is a magic little right point break tucked away right near the NSW border with Victoria. It works best and is certainly least crowded in winter, but in other months you can get good swells also. It works from about 3-10 feet, best in big south to east swells and south winds. Peaks on the outside, then barrels on the rock shelf and finishes on the shorebreak, about 100-150m+ long when big. Jump off the rocks,or paddle from the beach. Its hollow, smooth, and well worth a look, it also a beautiful spot within a National Park. Gets crowded in Summer, but almost empty in winter.
