- Great place.. Never had a bad session here. Raw, powerful and hollow waves all year round. Be careful of brown snakes on the walk down, seen my fair share just soaking up a few rays during the hotter months on the makeshift path.

amused - to all those people that right off tunks i doubt they have ever got it good. and thats probably because they dont know the conditions. when you look from the carpark and watch over head offshore over head barrels spitting you'll see that it is a good spot. every one says it's fickle all u need 2 do is be clued in on winds the hills actually channel the offshores.better than most of the elliot stretch and better than waits& parsons casue its throws a bigger wider barrel
