- im comin here after the world cup...if u see some fat dude on a long board this summer, offer him some weed.......i pay good money

By steve H..doncaster , 29-04-2005

cool spot - surf this on plenty of times, best at bouverie beach( the central entrance/middle car park off the main bend on the cote. Waves can be excellent at times and crap at others...but on the right day and tide you can stay out there all day unitl high tide when the sand banks tend to flatten it out. Best waves to be had on incoming tide. Camp sites are close by espesh one near lighthouse entrance...get in get wet
