Located in South West Australia, Pea Break is a fun but shallow rocky reef break. The steep and stepped drop leads to a deep and heavy righthand barrel that exits to a large wall expecting to be hacked. The waves here require skill and can break for up to 100 meters, providing fast and throaty barrels.
