 Additional Information

There are three possible breaks here. A small righthander that peels along a rip channel in the left corner, a peak in the middle of the beach and a righthander off rocks in front of the car park. These spots depend on conditions. A clean West swell and light offshores turn on the car park. The beach is more consistent. Reforming righthanders (having wrapped around an outside point) swing back into the beach and break on a sandbar alongside a deeper channel running along the rocks of the inside point section. The rip keeps the sand out and on the sandbar. Gets perfect here, but a little inconsistent. For its size, its pretty juicy. Best at around 2-4'.
