no probs - last spring we've surfed here for 5 days and were nearly all the time alone in the water. a few guys came to join us, but no problem. maybe when it's high season, it looks different...

Not rubbish - Its the truth! I'm not a local so couldnt care less if people surf here but just warning others about possible hazards.

rubbish - Had many a surf here and never had any trouble, it's just people talking rubbish to try and protect there spot!
