General

It can be a good spot and it can also be flat. I've seen it 6 foot and barreling and I've seen it 2 inches. You can snake the local blokes and they dont do shit:). There'all good blokes.

Locals - Ive been surfing there for 10 years, i'm only 18 now but i can tell you ive never had trouble with anyone. I love the place. When you get it just right which might only happen 4 or 5 times a year, when you get that time, wow theres been some beautiful pealing waves there over my time, and i mean beautiful waves. perfect faces's on them to ride up and down and up and down. Usually only happens when theres a cyclone far offshore and your in luck!
peace out.

Waves at Farnborough - Moved to Rocky from the Sunny Coast in March and apart from that one cyclone I havn't seen a wave over 2ft. I thought surely with all the S Swell in NSW this week some would wrap in but no luck. What conditions do you need up here to get a wave? have I just got bad timing or has it really been that flat?
