This is a multiple wave spot where you can easily go from spot to spot. The occasional rip will come along yet it is very weak.
Well there are multiple spots in this bay.
a good 7 foot face is held on the left of the bay about 10 metre ride before you should get out of it otherwise you'll end up on the rocks.
The point break is sick on big days but very dangerous if you don't know what your doing.
it is a very good spot to begginers to pros it all depends on the swell. Don't piss off the locals.
A great spot.

Up Horseshoe - seriously What's the fuss Creso and the rocks both have their advantages and disadvantages.
Horseshoe is different every damn swell and tide. No surf there is the same.
The locals are cool unless you do something to piss us off, don't be a dickhead and you'll get mad surfs there.
Some tourists really need to pull their fucking head in though.
