antehole - The correct way to spell this break is Antehole. The prefix "ante" means before, i.e. before the Cowrie Hole, hence antehole. There are a couple of breaks along this small stretch that rarely get surfed because there are usually better waves elsewhere that don't break right onto dry rock. The first wave past the Cowrie Hole gets a good looking right sometimes, fat lefts.

Total Bullshit - The place refered to is known as the anti-hole. (as in opposite the cowrie hole) Ive surfed round here for over 35 years, the photos are crap except maybe for one. #2 looks like pipe (north shore). So much crap is on wannasurf about the nobbys area . You young pricks are embarrassing us old school pioneers. Pull your fuckin heads in.
