This wave really is a regional classic, and the crowds are testament to that. While not as consistent as other waves in Byron, in the right conditions you can surf this waves overhead for 400m.
This break is popular most of the time, and while small it is suitable for learning. The sheer amount of people in the water when it's half decent makes it a health and safety inspectors nightmare. A great wave.
This wave breaks less consistently than other Byron Surf spots, however when it fires, crowds flock from everywhere. A solid set wave can see you riding a 6 foot wave for over 400m, dodging the other surfer and drop ins, all the way down to Byron Main Beach. Small days are great for learning at The Pass, but once the swell arrives, then it is experienced surfers only. The Pass works best in an East – North east swell with a South – South Westerly wind.
Byron is easy to find, and as mentioned above, the Pass is located half way between Byron Main Beach and the Cape Headland.Access & Parking Info / Cost
