 Additional Information

Needs huge swells to start breaking (eg 15 foot plus results in about a 1 to 2 foot wave). But as these swells usually come with a SW or W wind it means that almost everywhere but Stingray bay is on shore.

Atmosphere

This wave gets super fun with the swell wraping in from the open ocean an cleaning up it then hits the rock wall that the road to the breakwall is built on. Once it hits the rock wall it bounces off forming a sick fun little wedge that has heaps of drive, and offers fun barrels and air bowls. there is also side waves to play with. their is also a right hander of the island it breaks off a rock shelf and wraps along the sand its pretty cool
