Its a pretty shit wave. it only breaks on big swell and isnt good most of the time because the wind spoils it.
Good on a stand-up as you need to paddle a lot. Its a very long wave and a shifting take off. Really fun once you get going but need a big board to keep going through sections.
It can be a lot of fun when it lines up but is very finicky and it is an open water break so you need a lot of paddling power and it is open to wind.
