 Additional Information

Park your car anywhere in the beachfront parking spot. Jump off the pier in between sets. From 4ft up there are barrels on low tide, smaller it is a fun manouvre wave. Sit deep on the bigger days and call your wave to avoids drop ins. Paddle early to get in properly as it jacks up.

Atmosphere

Great spot for a surf if it is good and you could not be bothered hassling with the New Pier aggresion. Everyone is normally mellow and having fun.

Not the best in the area, but worth a try, especially with a bit of size.
