best wave around - this is my favourite spot in pe! super powerful and hollow. very sharky, seen plenty of ragged toouth sharks..

This spot fires - I used to live at Bluewater Bay back in the 80's and this place left me with some lasting memories. The banks need to be spot on with a north west wind and you should score the waves of your life. Watch out for sharks though!!
