A bay break, that works when the wind is over 30kms and hour in a south to southwest direction. the more wind the better. simply walk up the pier catch a wave in to shore and walk back up the pier to where the waves are breaking, if ur lazy. if not you can paddle back out. works 10+ days a year.
on the right day many surfers turn up at this break. friendly bunch of people who are just wrapped that that Tonez is working.
its certainly not worth a special trip, but if you are in the area most certainly have a crack at it.
