Catch wave, surf real fast and pop out the end -good fun :)

yeah its crap - Yeah you guys who think it sucks are right. listen to them. I been surfin there for 12 years. its Crap at low on a shortboard and crap at high on a long. crap crap crap. the conditions never change so your never going to get lucky. in fact i wonder why im going back today (again!) Its full of old dudes too at low tide: 60 yr old longboarders. so watch out. dont bother with it.

Alternatively, if you are a gentleman or a lady - High tide at the Gunnery can be a beaut long board wave. Mini mals will catch some usually too.
