Atmosphere

This spot is where you'll always find waves with no one out - perfect for bodyboarding - heavy and shallow!!! Rocky/sandy bottom!!!! Not to be taken lightly when a strong ground swell is running on a dropping tide.

yea your right. - Yea it just like most other stretches of coast, just another beachie. Theres no rocks holding the sand there it's just the beach drops away pretty quick so the waves tend to break fairly close to shore. and yea Ive seen it pretty crowed too, livin down here it's pretty lame when blow ins with no appreciation for the local crew put directions to your break on the world wide web, and hence adding to the potential crowd factor.That's gotta be 10 bad karma points for you.

Moving sand bank or the real deal? - Looks like a pretty typical sand bank that you find on most stretches of coast. Is there a rock shelf or something that makes it a permanent break? And why is no-one ever out there if it's so good?
