This is a great spot witch works off both the local swells ne swell and the wave is a realativly long super hollow left but the sw swell is harder to ride, bending over the rock to form a short but very intencse ride it is very hard to hold your position because it is about 40metres past the normal line up in the sea keep your eyes peeled for sharks see quite a few snorkling round the reef
The spot Tiffanys is a great day out being in one off the most scenic areas. Parking is safeish just make shore all you belongings are out of site otherwise they gone. The waves at the beach break are pretty world class when the swell is running which is quite often best early in morning late afternoon watch out for sharks
Hectic wave if caught on the right day very heavy and loads off power and can get seriously shallow dry
