Beware Arseholes who like the contents of your wagon, dogshit in the sand that camo's like sand. ( hate that..*Squish*) and dickheads who think they own the place after surfing there for 4 weeks..DUH....
Ok, main beach has a rocking break of the Island.
Breaks fast and hard depending on the swell direction. S/W swells create lefts, but banks usually prefer W/NW swells ( rights ).
Has banks that last all winter, and is usually 2-3 feet bigger than Piha. Walk north over the sandhill to another great spot called O'Neills.
Wot do I think? Oh well....its Shite...stay well the fark away, and yeah, go surf elsewhere. Nothing here folks...nothing here...on your way...go there..* points at Piha*
