Atmosphere

Great surfboard shaper Paul Gravelle lives here and his boards are very popular among the locals. Very Desertish scenery and hot most times except it winter, It gets cold! Only go out if it's good and has people out. Less chance of being eaten ;]. Low chance, but still. Have fun surfers! (No Lids)

- Surf this place 3 -4 times a year. Not many on it as caves draws the big crowd. Good for sharks. Have surfed it with seals out there. Locals are great. Love lids and goat boats to use as punching bags.
