 Additional Information

Closely gaurded wave by the locals and when you see it you cant blame them. Super long and powerful wave at its best thats get huge, has been seen at 15foot. Needs a big to huge SE swell to wrap in properly but surprises you often. Watch the rocks and when its big time your gap well otherwise you will be washed over the rocks and they are sharp

Atmosphere

The Point is a lovely fun wave that crumbles down the face. It is not a barrel but has a lot of power. Nice for carving and practicing your moves. Perfect Longboard wave.
