Ollie’s Point is preferable on a high tide and should be avoided during low tide. It is recommended that only experienced surfers ride the world class waves here due to the dangerous rocks. It is expected that there should be suitable surfing conditions for 150 days of the year with an average wave length of 150 to 300 meters however, on a good day you can expect wave lengths from 300 to 500 meters. There is a south westerly swell direction with the wind coming in from the east.

Although Ollie’s Point is off the beaten track and is accessed only by boat, a swell size of up to 16 feet means that it can become quite crowded during the weekend. For a quieter surfing session, it would be better to take a trip to Ollie’s Point during the week.
