Just north of Blue Duck a consistent lefthander at Iron Gate is a good option that makes the most of small swells. Depending on where you take off, you sometimes need to pick a line through an area of kelp. A fun and mellow wave at this size.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
