Week crowdFew surfers
ure a psycho if u go this break, very hardcore reef made of sharp rock and cunji. Extremely shallow, out the back, about 2 m deep, then sucks up on dry reef, hardcore break.
Take of peak cruble when it gets to around 5 ft then you drive through a barrel over shallow cungi covered reef called whitrock then IF you have make that then you ride high on the wave face through the infamous surge.
Atmosphere is usually crap because of all the bodyboarders thinking there better than each other so its usually like ' oi, get the hell off my wave' even if your inside them and in prime position, so just shut up and wait 4 the right one.
Its classic in the winter months but the lefts are the go with the summer NE swell and 4 the summer surfin kooks that get there on the train at around 6:30 and crowd every funkin spot in the nulla out to the max.
