Atmosphere

The legendary Bruce's has remained more-or-less the same over the years despite urban creep over the dune and the new Port up the point...it cranks but you gotta know the right conditions ! It's hollow, fast and when big, pretty dangerous if you wipe in front of the rocks. Crowds not always a problem as J Bay down the coast is normally pulling them in at the same time.
