Long Reef beach and outer reefs pick up any east to southeast swell ensuring consistent and often good beach breaks, particularly down in the central No Man’s Land. When the swell is south and exceeds 1m and the wind offshore the famous Long Reef bomboras start to break. The inner First Bommie holding to 1.5m, the Second Bommie to 3m, and the Outer Bommie or German Bank, a huge righthand break, now popular with tow-in surfers. Long Reef is also popular with windsurfers and international contests are held on the bomboras.
