Brilliant - Dont why it says experienced only? This is the spot I first stood up. Absolutely brilliant spot. Nice clean waves, protected from the North winds, water crytal and the waves are the best Ive been in. This place rates the best for myself, although Ive only been surfing a couple of days and in a couple of places but miles better than other beaches Ive attempted to surf at.

Stoooopid Boogers - Surfers rule everywhere, no boogers deal out any heavy beatings my friend, it's the other way around speedbump.

oi - surfers need to stay away from this beach because of the furious beat downs we bodyboarders give them stay at maccauleys respect
