This sandbar is magical - works in all swell directions and never disappears even after a cyclone! Very reliable for waves though rarely surfed now - it used to be the main wave surfed in the area!!!! Unbelievable!
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.
get their for the early and surf with the dolphins as most of the locals dont even know about this place !!!!!!!

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?
