Fickle - I agree with previous post. I grew up in this area and probably had it good/epic 3 or 4 times in like 10 years. Only worth checking it if there is at least a small wave breaking at Paranoia with a SE.

- I'm not sure how you girls rate these spots - how the hell does pringle scoop 4 stars. I've seen it good twice in 20 years, for the rest its 1ft and closing out.

dont get blown to sea - surfed this spot a lot when i was learning. is great when the south easter is pumping and betties is blown out. if the wind is really blowing you really get blown offshore, sometimes the wind is blowing so hard u cant sit on your board cos u act like a sail. if u go to far the paddle to get back to the beach can be a huge mission.
