 Additional Information

This is a great A-frame peak which starts breaking on a bombora reef. The right is a nice bowl that breaks in towards the city. The left starts with a nice wall that peals in to the East End point (inside bogworks). In a big swell the left can connect from the bombora to the point.

Atmosphere

Nice wave and still not crowded even though it's right in the city.

Be careful out there - Experts only. Only breaks properly when its over 8 foot faces. Gets a whole lot bigger. Tricky and sometimes very dangerous entryexit on sharp rocks and boulders. About a 15 to 20 minute paddle at a minimum. Lots of current that pulls you into the pit a la Haleiwa. Be prepared to get caught inside. Heaps of power. Shallow on the inside section. Slammed on the bottom a coupla times Closest break to the center of town but a long way from help. Have seen Orca there twice when it was breaking. Recently on a big day I saw a craypot heading North in the lineup. Thought the current was really strong. Later that morning a mate started pulling the craypot up out the back at YZ's and found a six foot mako on the other end!
