Cold water, Seals, big Sharksand Kelp. - Grew up suring this area, Dont think its like indo, good wave though, has it's good days. Can be abit freaky paddling out. Have seen a few seals getting around. Big shark's everywhere down here. As for the kelp, anoying stuff on the surface, suprisingly beutiful underneth, looks like an under water forest when diving through it.

oooh i feel bad! - i am the punk who posted this spot on the site..what an ass?? well.. those who think this wave is stink and ficklemaybe you hav'nt scored it.. ??true,, it is better surfing it with a few guys out.. then atleast there's more to choose from when it comes to feeding the little sharks out there..not worried bout the sharks? just have a look at the photo's on the wall in the dairy out of waikawa.. biguns aye..
