A beach break set-up with a couple of reefs to the south. Gets good swell and can be dangerous when over 3 meters
A nice wave with the right conditions. Can get crowded on the weekends.

Forshore..Forsure - I believe this is the actual beach that the Maori decided to land on 1000 or so years ago. Legend has it, the canoe took off on a bombie next to the island and proceeded its way onto the inside section with a few hacks and cutbacks, got absolutely kegged while at the same time casting nets off the side fishing for the vile sea snake, we know this snake today simply as a booger.
