fat as - haha "the best and safest spot is the one in the front of the carpark" thats the most stupid oxymoron i have ever heard best is never the safest and theres no way that its a good wave. On the best day of the year here it is fun no more. surfed it maxing over double overhead and it was still only fun. not much of a barrel to be seen here ever
