 Additional Information

This spot only works in a large northerly swell, which most often happens when there are very strong winds in excese of 90 kph.
But its not a bad thing due to the Pa facing a vally. This vally funnels the wind in to the on comming waves, which makes them off to cross shore. Other times when it is good is during cyclone swells when the west coast go's off, which is usually lates summer through to about april.

Atmosphere

Not to many people go here, but it is a fun wave.
I've had some good surfs here for an onshore day.

The Pa - The Pa is actually a point break situated at the end of the quarry. It works once or twice a year on very big westerly swells and delivers quality 200/300 meter rides which can be very hollow on the low tide.Outside Pa is also an option and is pretty rocky, also hollow.
