 Additional Information

Paddle out on the reef. The rip will take you off the reef into the channel.From there you just paddle out to the back.
But be careful surfing there because the reef is real sharp and many injuries have happened their like my dads mate who puntured a lung and broke his ribs. The reef is shallow so dont get caught on the inside.
