More of a heavy water wave than a lot of others in the area, Thunders can be challenging. The fact that it picks up so much swell means shifting peaks can pop up from different directions, catching people unaware.
For those able to dial in the conditions of the day thunders offers great quality along all sections of the large reef. On a good day thunders throws up racing barrels at the top of the reef a chance for some speed turns and hooks in the pocket before focusing and throwing some drainers on the shallower inside section. Chargers get a chance to pull out the guns at size, thunders is the go to spot in small swells, meaning it can sometimes be crowded with charter boat traffic.
Picks up all available swells but breaks better with some west and offshore in southerly winds.
