Atmosphere

A relitively quiet spot, but spooky and if no-ones out you can hear a howling noises coming from the barrel. Very scary late in the afternoon don't want to surf when it gets dark it becomes really sharky.

Bro - Yeah photo 3 is the only photo of this place, its like that often as well, so if you want a secluded reef which breaks left and right, go here !

No more fake photos - Stop putting up fake photos. It just pisses everyone off. I live round here, but have never surfed there, but even i know that a wedge barrel (photo 1) and a beach break shorey (photo 2) are not butterbox. It doesn't make u any cooler, trust me.
