This spot is a super hollow sand bar that most has lefts but every now and then dets short but good rights. The wave when breaking right refracts off outer reefs forming a left peak the runs of real fast with most closing out but enough makable ones to keep it interesting
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!
sick fun,and always pitting

yer right - man i'm a local an i been a local 4 19 years i would no maore bout dis spot than anyone else. in summer the sand builds up round there coz of the movement of the bay an the breakwater causes it. its shallow but surfable good fun on a clean day.
