About Three Bears

A series of reef peaks affectionately called Three Bears, thanks to their ability to have something in the just right category in a wide range of swell sizes. The hierarchy is obvious with Papa’s furthest out and able to handle triple overhead plus. Mama's can be a perfect sucking barrel on those medium-sized SW swell days, with heavy drops and speedy walls, favouring the lefts at mid tides. Baby’s isn't always the runt of the litter and can have nice spiralling lefts and a few decent rights off the peak in small to moderate SW-W swells. Makes the most of small swells and is prone to regular clean-up sets at any size.

Considering the isolated location, the crowds are exceptionally thick, especially on smaller summer days and the rough 4WD track does little to keep numbers down. Reef is sharp and expect some powerful hold-downs at size.
