=) - Is it that break at the quarry carpark?? seen that easily surfable been tempted to paddle out afew times but if thats on other places are less deadly/better.

Ha - 150 days a year? - This wave would be lucky to break 150 days a decade...

- It probably is a waste of time being on here as no one surfs it, but the bombra is about 75-100m off the rocks.It usually dies out in the thick pactch of seaweed, then reforms and breaks hard on the rocks.
