 Additional Information

You can jump off the rocks at Banzai and paddle across the channel if you couln't be bothered paddling out from the beach, IMHO it'll only save you about 5 minutes.

Atmosphere

Lefts is a thick wave and is more powerful than other waves of the same height.
The wave looks like its going to break much sooner than it actually does, which can make first timers sit out further than they need to.

Heavy lefts - this place may look small from the lookout but it is way bigger after you paddle about 100m out. This break is known for its size and dont paddle out if your not experienced.Also when other local spots are small this place should have a fun head high left.
