the quality of the wave is dependant on the sand build up next to the reef. if it is fat then there is obviously no sand bank there and you will have to come back another day to surf the proper gravis.
it is a really nice wave when the banks are good and there is a bit of swell. when the swell gets over 3m then gravis shorey starts to work (if it has a bank!) this can be surfed with any wind when it gets big because usually even if it is offshore it is still fairly messy.
i thinknits sick coz i live so close to it. but reeaaly, if u want me to tell u the truth its a really crap spot and it never gets any waves summer or winter, its crowded, people drop in on u, and not worth ever even checking because its so bad (especially when the swell is 4-5m and there is a light NE wind
