the best wave in this area , ultra long on a decent swell, great take off section runs into a soft but very, very long wall. mal riders out of control here on any swell theres heaps out. it's mal city which is such a shame because a shortboarder can go mad on a decent wave.
its crowed all the time and the mal riders go mental at everyone! its really sad to see three or more mals drop in on each other and chuck mentals, all are like 200 years old but they carry on like there better then kelly slater and gonna turn pro next week. most locals are cool but everyone needs to kick back and take your turn. so you get one good one a hour, isn't that better then acting like a greedy, ancient, mal riding fuckwit and spoiling the country laidback vibe for everyone? think about it
its one of the best hotdogging waves around. when was the last time you got a clean tube on take off and then had a fun wall to do ten off the tops on or twenty round house cutbacks? half way down the line your legs will be screaming for mercy!!

ghanaiian. - With regards to all this bullshit tribalism about what length board you ride-man, some of you people really evolve a little and perhaps some anger management therapy wouldn't go astray either. With half the world starving who really gives a toss whether you have more or less fibreglass(or whatever material) under your feet( or your guts or arse) whilst you are on a wave. We should all be grateful we are able to go surfing and leave it at that. Live and let live and for god sake find something that really is important to whine about.
