English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): South Point is impossible to miss (being on the south side of Cowaramup Bay), with a carpark overlooking the break and an easy 200 metre walk down to the rocks. As a result South Point is rarely uncrowded.
This wave really needs a good size south to sou' Wester swell to start firing. When it does it breaks about 20 metres off the rock right next to a nasty looking niggerghead (looks a bit like an anti-ship mine. It'll certainly sink you if you hit it). A short steep section continues from the takeoff then backs off into a lazy long wall which lends itself for cutbacks.
South point really comes into it's own when indicators hits seven foot plus (Indicators is the wave breaking out back on the point, named because it precedes the reform that comes into south point). The South Point wave breaks up 50 metres further out than normal. Surfers out here can surf straight in at the bombie, then bottom turn into a full stand up barrel. The barrel tends to collapse at the end and you need to bust out before continuing on the obligatory lazy long section, but pulling into the barrel is definately worth it.
On these bigger days, South Point shows that it can be surprisingly heavy in the impact zone and caution is needed if your stuck inside (Those rocks are really a bit close for comfort).
English (Traduisez ce texte en Français): South Point is one of the easiest waves to ride down here on bigger days, and is one of the few spots that can handle a South Westerly (West to North winds wreck just about everything down here).
Crowds are a definate factor, even more so when the onshores hit.

Caution: sharks. - Surfers should take note that a number of fatal shark attacks have occurred in this area over the years. The most recent fatality, a 31 year old male surfer, occurred at 8:00am on 17 August 2010 at South point.
Though the threat of shark attack is extremely minimal, surfers should avoid surfing alone, when pods of seals have been identified in the area and when the water is murky.

not too deep - me and a mate stayed down gracetown for a week not to long back, on the way there we met a huge storm and had to sit in our cabin the whole day, the next morning we woke up and checked out south point. it was pumping 6ft and only bout 3 blokes out, we had a chat to some locals in the carpark and they were telling us not to get close to that rock as the tide was low and it was coming out, we surfed it for about 2-3 hours and just felt we werent getting everything out of this wave. we decided to start taking off close to this rock and sure enough my mate pushed it too far and took off right on top of it. he got caught by the lip and got dropped right on dry rock. the wave behind washed him over thay gnarly little ledge on the inside, he dinged the shit outa his board aswell. he went in complianing bout his arm and knee so we went to margs hospitle. it turned out he broke his arm and kneekap. pretty hectic haha so stay away from that rock on low tide!

A bit crowded these days - South point suffers from the handy and sometimes unfortunate quality that it still can fire when the Sou' Westerlies start blowing in the afternoon. As a result, if it is any good it will have 15+ surfers all over it. Weekends are worse. It starts to break when the swell hits 2.5 metres or more (lower swells will come into south point if they are coming from a westerly direction). Best size is 6-7 feet, and crowd thins a bit at this size. Any bigger, and it tends to become a bit of a washing machine. This place has a deceptively good barrel off the 'Bombie' that tends to collapse on exit, with a long soft wall after that. Newbies should try out husses in the bay. Very good wave to introduce the groms to the south west.
