Dangers

 Additional Information

It has a large car park but do not park at the end bays by the surf riders club or your gear may be stolen. A fast wave with a big wall and gets hollow. The beauty is that it is good in any wind, I had some awsome ones in a 35km/h onshore; it is good at all tides but on a big swell at low tide you cannot surf the main break you need to sit on the rights. It is best from mid to high but is always crowded no matter the wind, even more so in summer. It is only a beach break so there are no real dangers, it is not very heavy most of the time but now and then with a few days of westerlies and a strong swell you can get worked; even more so as the tide sucks back - you get draged under water for about 5-7m before getting sucked to the bottom it is nothing to bad but you can get held down for a few seconds.
