Atmosphere

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.
