make sure you lock your car the locals tend to be on the look out for cars to break into up in the car park. Make sure you take off right next to the big rock that will allow you to get into a nice gizzy barrel.
this spots cool because it is the half way point if you r paddling to the island so u can have a few waves here and a rest on the way to nz best wave. that is bowl gizzy island
its ok, i go there bout 2 times a month on my way to the island
