Surfing At Henderson Bay

Looking Down at the Waves

Looking Down at the Waves

Henderson Bay is a favourite spot for our local surfers with well known A-frame peaks usually a few hundred metres south from the car park.  Often when conditions are unfavourable for surfing on the west coast at Shipwreck Bay and other places, conditions here are favourable and only a short drive away.

Very well known within the local surfing scene, Henderson Bay is a stop on some of the surfing tours that are offered from out of our area.

Some surfers who live at the more well known surfing spots will spend their holidays in Henderson Bay surfing as they enjoy the less crowded surfing area as well as the spectacular scenery.
