 Additional Information

If it is going to be a kind tide avoid parking on the beach side of the car park or ya car will get wet. Really fun rippable wave but if u go on the alley side close to elephant rock the waves are hard to catch because there is a gutter strait after the wave breaks and causes the wave to die but if u can stay on it reforms again. Nice sand banks all the way down the Collangatta side of the rock.
