Atmosphere

Watch out for the bottom rock on high tide.

People hassle when it gets good for sure.

Sean Birkholtz _ aka S-dAWG - Bruu!!! you are obviously a bodyboarder who doesnt know what he is doing!!!! New Pier CRANKS at the end of those winter months when the easterly swells start dredging on the sand-banKS!!!! go sing some songs for grey###cHEER lEADER

Inconsistant!! - Oh my word pew pier is the most inconsistant wave i have ever come across! IT NEVER BREAKS! during the year it is occupied by some jock vaalies with jetski's that think they are extreme because they can ramp a 1ft wave and get 2ft air. They are all hackers. But anyway..getting back to the wave - i have had some EPIC sessions at this place but they are few and far between. And when news is out that it is working the crowds come in huge numbers. And all most of the surfers cant handle the fast speed that the wave breaks at and they hack like crazy. Go to pipe or something if you're going to get in our way.
