Never surfed it, always wantd to.
Such a fantastic location with reef/point set ups on each side.
i just finished reading bob mctavish's book "stoked".
he mentions a local maroochydore legend called tarzan that reguarly paddled over there and back in 50s.
he talks about surfing the island in 1964. rode a right all day with mates, there were lots of oysters and a spring of fresh water. says they went back a few times, and tells of a very big hammerhead in the channel on one of the trips.
he also mentions the island when he takes a small plane flight along the coast with george greenough filming. that footage is in one of his films -- can't remember if it's in "inner most limits of pure fun" or "crystal voyager".
Sharky paddle over there, even more when cut up on the reef for the paddle back!!! I was never game.
I wonder if the magic cream puff tree still bears cream puffs?
