About Caves

Just on the other side of the spooky, shark infested channel is Caves, a phenomenal right which is the locals favourite and regarded as the best spot in the Cactus area. With morning offshores and a decent swell, it can become a reeling world-class, voluminous barrel breaking over a shallow ledge. Caves holds a good size, prefers lower tides and must be offshore NE. There’s also a localism factor to take into account, as guys have settled down here purely to surf this spot and they enforce strict laws about wave priority.

The most crowded spot for sure if it is working. Only experts will make the drop and although the reef is a slab, it's sharp. Booties.
