“OK I live on Phillip Island and surf Berrys all the time. It is the second best wave when it's on other than express at it's best. It is damn scary for competent surfers only max high tide and it's still two foot deep if you like getting your arse handed to you when you bomb the drop good luck. Only handles 6 foot but can be surfed at 8 plus if you piss the locals off like me. Good luck getting a wave, it gets crowded with 8 guys in the water and once the lids hit it forget getting a wave out there. Well thats all have fun and enjoy.”
