This spot is a combination of a point break to a beachie. The wave starts at snapper rocks and breaks all the way through to kirra with alot of sections. On a good day all you can do is pump and pump for the tube, other days its a very long wall for you to carve.
The Atmosphere is basicly snapper, greenmount and kirra all combined. ALOT of people but sometimes if you pull into a good wave that can be satisfying enough.
do not surf this break unless u want to walk all the way back up the beach(2km)after gettin the ride of ur life. but the walk is easly calmed by the great amount of gold coast girls sunbakeing before ur eyes(",)
