Week-end crowdFew surfers
- Rips / undertow
Confident on lefts,watch for rips leading to the sea, don't surf early morning, late night alone, best to wear booties and watch for flying golf balls. Holds up to 10ft but breaks a bit wide and isnt its best.
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.
Epic, gotta surf it. Great for your cutback bottom turn repetuor.

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.
