 Additional Information

this break is a wedge, with swell refacting of a stack 300 meters offshore. it then raps in towards the sand spit with waves comeing from either side of the spit. this means when you take off you have to look for a wave coming towards you, this allows you to hit the oncoming wave like a ramp and get some very very big air. This spt is also special as at least one of the side wavw is offshore/cross shore on matter what the wind as the waves come in at angles to the shore.

Atmosphere

this spot is heaps of fun at around 2 foot, but you have to be fairly fit cause if you get stuck in the impact zone you can have waves coming from both sides of you, and where the waves meet it has the power of two waves. Once it gets over 2 foot a current forms making it harder to catch waves, while a 6 foot the rip gets carzy, but so does the wedge. When it is more cross shore then off try and catch the sloppy wave into the wave that is more offshore as it means you get a more powerful section to hit.
