 Additional Information

Shallow and pretty dangerous. This righthander works off another rocky reef. Offers an insane barrel at times. Watch out for the full-stop rocks about halfway down. The rocks shorten the ride. If it wasn't for this closeout section, the wave would carry on for another 30 metres or so. Very heavy wave at times so take caution when big.

Atmosphere

Watch out for the rocks!!! Super hollow and a HEAVY BEAST of a wave. Often better suited for bodyboarders, many boards have been broken here.

Cold water Pipeline - When it works well and it often does, this spot has been compared to pipeline in Hawaii but even more properly consistent, a cold water version..
