Awesome fun wave!Hard to master at first no matter how good you surf, but once you get the hang of it, its hard to keep away!Great when there is no surf and its open from early morning to late at night. Sessions are one hour long, and good luck if you think you can last more than two hours..Very tiring!!!
Great place to be and even hang out!Got a bar and pool tables right next to it, so if you fancy just parking off, perfect! There is also a huge custom made skate park designed by Tony Hawk, and a world class one at that!All the equip you can hire there for the flow rider and skate park if you wish. Has a huge climbing wall inside if that also takes to your attraction..Generally exceptional place to be when there is no surf and nothing to do!!!

Stay Away - Locals Only - Watch the local crew! They're all gettin' round wearing their rashies on the outside. The locals here don't tolerate non-locals and have I mentioned the sharks?? I suppose that this place has been given 5 stars as well hey!?! In the worlds top 30 no doubt....
