About Mount Irvine

Located off a beach famous for safe family fun and snorkelling, this top quality righthand reef breaks down the headland on the north side of the double-scalloped bay. It’s a fast, racy wall with pits to park in and lips to float as it peels down the colourful live coral platform. N-NE swells from Nov-April are the key, it’s usually offshore all-day and will be better at mid to high tides. There’s also a left further down the reef on the biggest swells. Crowds get thick when it’s on, parking is scarce, the paddle is long and the locals expect to dominate the peak. Dead flat in summer.

The heavy local crew jump off the rocks, but it’s safer to paddle out from the middle of the bay. It never breaks in summer, but is fairly consistent (5/10) during the winter months.
