Sharks - i llike this beach its shitty in summer but gets alright in the winter but everytime i go there and its good i get called out the water cause of fucking sharks hahaha

- generally a good fun wave, locals are usu. nice, when big swells get in it can be really shallow. like shin-deep. sucks up and consistently barrels- a good place to get your first barrel- i got mine there- nice and easy to surf, but make sure you dont fall off on big days- a very shallow bottom, u could find your self with a face full of sand and a few teeth missing
