Description: 

Tom Bowling Bay is a beach break on a sandy beach, located east of Spirits Bay, out near the north eastern tip of North Cape. Tom Bowling Bay is very isolated and hard to access, also meaning no crowds. There are several peaks to choose from along the beach with both right and left handers. The wave is punchy and fun. Good for all levels of surfer.
