 Additional Information

O Mckenzies you are a fickle misstress.
Its a little bay (100m across) that is highly dependent upon the sand banks that gather here during storms events. Over summer it slowly gathers sand but can lose it all due to one overnight storm. I think that a storm can also deposit sand here.
There is a beach sometimes and at other times just rock.
Paddle out (channel on north side of bay)
or walk out and launch off rock platform on north side of bay

Atmosphere

Lots of body boarding (lidders) freaks and locals. Its uncanny how a hollow wave can just appear here when metres away at Tama there is nothing but mush.
When it get some size and is working the lidders get a little scary regarding their disregard for personal safety.
There are also rights (generally shorter ending in deeper water)
Its generally a very tight takeoff zone. Dont be surprised when its working to be shoulder to shoulder with your watery brethren.

General

Its tops when it works, many lazy summer days spent here on fun little waves. Also some hellish drops and great rides when it works. Best pits north of Botany Bay.

- When it's big and 'on', one of the best hand-board and bodysurfing waves in the world. To the memory of George, who rode the Bombora from Mckenzies into South Bronte - without flippers and using his wife's best roped breadboard. He still rules !
