Park in main car park on top of cliff, walk down to beach, you'll see it...Its a hollow wave that breaks in the same place every time, perfect...It works in almost any wind from W, SW, S, SE ,E as it is well protected by large cliffs...Needs big North Swell...
Amazing spot to surf in, an area of water alive with marine life, Awsome scenery with cliffs! And Northern Coast in the distance...
This spot is SOOO good, even though it rarely works its worth goin there when it does, I've scored it to myself and my friend twice now, Both times epic as...My favourite right hander in New Zealand...
