Description: 

Glenduan is a right hand point break on a rocky shoreline, at the north end of the boulder bank, Glenduan. The wave is fast and hollow with steep drops and good lenght rides. It will often have sections you won't make and a dredging closeout to finish. Don't go out the the end of the point on the outside break as its too shallow. Leave this one to advanced and expert surfers only. Careful getting in and out on the rocks/boulders.

Directions: 
From Nelson head noth on State Highway 6, then turn left onto Glen Road and park at the end at the boulder bank.
