 Additional Information

The most consistant beach break on Guernsey, portifer is usually 2ft bigger than vazon. Best of the down tide, Portinfer start breaking a mid-tide producing rights and lefts in the middle of the bay. The lower the tide the more hollow and powerful the wave becomes, unfortunately it also has more of a tendancy to close out.

stoke on slop - I recon vazon is better. It's more consistent and has more options. The crowd gets spread so I get more waves!!Someone seriously needs to educate these cocky kids though,masses of snakings and drop-ins, I know it's not serious surf and therefore not serious consequences from drop-ins, but it's still freakin annoying.
