Supertubes how about super poo - Used to be alright about 10yr back but a big storm washed a bucket load of sand through the reef never properly recovered, though I would be interested to see since the last major swell, probally works best on a 1-1.5 meter swell with a good 8-10 Sec period and a low tide sit really deep like about 100 meters from crabs right, you can get some alright waves and the occasional right hander which arent too bad, locals are pretty cool, all the tuff talk here is from 13y old with no pubes

By dont hear nothing when im out there... , 16-03-2006

more info... - why not??? im not a local, and ive been out there on a bodyboard when ever its working and im in town since 1991. ive been told its called super tubes?
