- Man-made danger (buoys etc..)
This is a very heavy ledgy right hand wave breaking in big southerly swells. Dangers include a breakwall with large manmade concrete blocks located further inside the wave.On a good day the wave will break all the way into the breakwall so pulling of the wave early is sometimes essential. The wave is guarded by a few local Bodyboarders who charge the wave. Experienbce is essential and if in doubt, dont paddle out.Sucks dry when the tide gets low.
Generally guarded by a few local bodyboarders. Usually only a handful out as most people are too intimidated by the waver characteristics to paddle out.
Generally inconsistent but becomes good when everywhere else is closing out on a big south swell.Offers some heaving barrels and suited to a bodyboard.
