The main Point Lookout Beach (1588A) runs south for 33km to Jumpinpin Inlet. The waves maintain a 200m wide double bar system, with the inner bar usually attached to the beach and cut by deep rip channels every 200 to 300m. A deep trough parallels this bar, with the outer bar on its seaward side cut by more widely spaced rips. The beach continues like this all the way to Jumpinpin Inlet, only changing its name to Blue Lake Beach (1588B) 6km south of Point Lookout. On an average day, up to 150 rips will be operating along the beach. In addition, there are permanent rips running out of the South Headland pocket beach and the northern end of Point Lookout Beach, below the surf club, together with a rock reef in the rip channel.
