Description: 

The Cut is located on the end of the Nelson Harbour spit/Breakwater, you will find the surf on the outside and it wraps around the end of the point.. Its a right hand point break onto a rocky shore. It requires a big over 6 foot cyclone swell to get it working, but when its on you will find powerful right handers with gnarly drop ins. Advanced and expert surfers only.

Directions: 
From Nelson make your way to the Harbour and find a park on/near Rocks Road State Highway 6, just south of the Harbour. From here it is a long paddle across to the end of the spit/breakwater. You will find the surf on the outside and it wraps around the end of the point.
