Atmosphere

While most of the waves close out your in it for so long and its so round it worth it, and when you do make one it'll be worth claiming. You usually get it to your self and it can also be worth surf when it is SE wind as it s still clean when everywhere else is to bumpy. Also causes it so shallow and powerful it might be an idea not to take youe favourite board out there as it has claimed more boards then anywhere in the area!
