Atmosphere

Wouldn't surf here alone as its a long way from anything, havent attempted the trail on a wet day as its a bit of an intense drive over on a dry day... clay track, definatley 4wd only. very hard to pick given that its 20 min drive over the hill and atleast 30 min from the nearest suburb... but if you are totally over the obnoxious crowd at Titahi bay and looking for an adventure... here is the place to go. if the surf is crap the 4wding is insanse!

this seems to get bigger swell than Titahi bay as its not blocked by mana island and on the big days has a nice right hand point break as well as the beach break.

need to go here ona reasnobaly big day.. no smaller than 3-4 feet at titahi bay, but has super potential with no corwds.
