Bunga Head Surf Guide

Bunga Head in Far South Australia is a fairly exposed point break that does not work very often. Summer in particular tends to be flat. Offshore winds blow from the southwest with some shelter here from south winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. Rarely crowded here. Beware of rocks,urchins, rips and sharks.
