 Additional Information

Well known spot with mainly locals on it. Be nice to them and youll get waves. This spot is seriously powerful and should only be tackled by okes who know what theyre doing. A mistake here will get you badly grated. The reef is often only a few foot deep, hence the way the wave often looks like its doubling and trippling up.

Atmosphere

Good spot but dont wipeout cause its shallow and sharp. Anything over 7 foot is just stupid and asking for serious trouble.
