 Additional Information

This spot is everything the Factory isn't, even though it's only a few hundred metres away. Featuring shifty sand-bottomed peaks, with rips and channels all over the place, Witsands is the last resort if your surf mission has failed to deliver. However, even when it's cooking you might land up at Witsands, albeit via a different medium. It's your likely destination if you have fall victim to the Factory's habit of sending you packing in a rip that tears across the bay during a huge swell. There are many good peaks here though and often few crowds, even when the factory (Crayfish factory) is packed.
