General

Take-off is in a huge bowl, so be quick.....can sometimes offer up excellent barrels depending on swell direction. At high tide its mostly a waste of time. Some shark activity but not bad..

- wish the point worked lately (as in the last 2 years).But it still produces the goods on the rare occasion.Pics dont do any justice at all.Seen Foden Saunders back-dooring one's 2-3 times the size of pic 2 on an ol'Turbo3.Oh yes...good times.

allways a wave - its a sick little wave,a wierd fucker, the swell wraps around and bowls, so its real fast and wedgy, with an insane takeoff...this place works all the time, the locals are freindly, and despite what may be your first impression, its not that dodgie outside. watch yourself exiting, i cut myself all the time.
