 Additional Information

One of the heaviest waves for sure around here. For experienced surfers only. An intense drop which you wanna make otherwise you kiss the reef, which is more often than not exposed. We've had many scars from this spot. I think mostly better suited for bodyboarders. Insane when big. Dont drop in on anyone.
