 Additional Information

Righthander in small, rocky bay. It works the same as Pringles. SE offshore wind. Usually a bit bigger than Pringles. It works when you least expect it. Picks up quite abit of swell. Can get hectic with bigger swell. Sometimes there is a pretty good shorey and a wave that wedges off the rocks on the left side of the bay. Theres a mean reef break on the right side that works with big swell and only on high or rising tides. Big open barrels.

Moonlight works almost all year round. - Moonlight works regularly, atleast over 150 days a year. Its always on Winter, Autumn, Spring and often in summer too. Very good wave and never anyone else in sight. If you look closely youll see a few different peaks in the bay. Walk down to the lighthouse and theres a secret spot you might find, a heavy reef break.
