Week-end crowdFew surfers
Breaks Left and Right - can be a lot of fun. Not a pro spot or anything, but relaxed easy surfing, with enough mix ups etc to keep you guessing, Tide has a lot to do with where its gonna break next. The key is moving to where the next break is going to be - need to be aware.
Laid back - lack of retards - very good in the mornings and can be great at sunset. This is a basic beach brask, so you have to move to the peaks etc But carries a good wave from time to time.

Lone pine? - this is just a tree near the beach at bighton in christchurch. yeah its a shitty wave where almost every wave is a close out and when its over head it takes about 15mins just to paddle out, i still dont understand why i surf it but i guess is cause its close, but we do get the odd swell (about 4 times a year) where its over head and its an easy paddle out and the rides a long (15-20sec haha) and for some reason they feel fuckin good when they happen.
