Week-end crowdFew surfers
- Rips / undertow
Can close-out on good days in summer, winter is fine with better banks
Never really anybody out to provide an atmosphere!
Basically produces one or two surfable days in Summer with a usual 30-40 knot onshore breeze but in Winter it is sheltered from strong NW and combined with huge southery swells from antarica produces some epic days with hardly anybody out. It also can get very cold.
