Inconsistant wave but can be lots of fun on its day. Quality of the wave depends on the sand bars which seem to move from year to year.
u gotta just get inside the gallows and pull in so smoothly so that you can actually make it. its a pretty hectic break
I have many fond memories of powerfull waved breaking over a sand bottom here. Check out the right hander off Cooks Island as well.
