Avoca Beach is both a beach break and point break that can get crowded on the weekend. With an easy rip that takes you straight out the back of the point there are also excellent peaks running along the beach in a number of different swells. The southern point break offers protection from strong southerly winds. While it can be competitive, Avoca offers a fun wave where if you are confident and paddle out the back to hold your position you’ll gain respect with the locals. Avoca point is a hollow fast wave more thrilling for the experienced surfer and requiring some hassling skills.
