Highly variable banks. Can hold up to 6 foot on a very good day but often closes out in anything over 2.5/3ft.
Banks are generally better on high tide although there have been exceptions.

Kensternator - There are banks that seem to hold for a a few weeks then it reverts back to dumpers. Went out last sunday with awesome little left and right three footers cruising along the middle of the beach. I don't know about it holding 6ft plus, the swell never seems fragmented enough when the swells that solid. I reckon East coast surfers would be surprised by the power of this place when it's cooking.
