Stoked - Non Com has the best set up you could ask for. An Unspoilt beach where the only people you'll come across are a fisherman or 2, and maybe a couple perli's. When you are surfing there you feel at one with nature. Its unspoilt beaty will leave you in awe. It is by far the best wave you'll find around PE, and the most consistent. The take-offs are so intense but if you hold your line you're in for a treat of a barrel. It is a very powerful wave and it is very common to get spat out of the pit. Lets keep this an underground spot and not get it commercialised.

Nonkop - Locals only??? Didn't the good Lord ever tell you to share what He has so generously given you? You steal from others, so shall be stolen from you. Be happy and share the waves.
