This spot is mother really heavy. EXPERTS ONLY. There can be a jacked up take off zone.
If you like fast rights, head to the southern end at Black Rock at high tide
The spot has a problem with localism, if ever on in the summer (extremely rare.) In winter the cold water and black bottom gives the spot a feel like thurso.
Its mean and gnarly but if youve got balls and your a good surfer the go for it!

- Black rock is not a pro wave it's a pretty ordinary much surfed emmit catching reef break. there are at lease two
better sots within a mile of it.

dangerous??? - i've surfed at black rock and i was only 13 so i personally think its safe, its only dangerous when unertows and rips happen

completely agree! - this spot really isnt that special, ive surfed there so many times even when was just learning the basics, at high tide yeah it can be bit dodgy unless you know what your doing but otherwise its pretty safe bet, esp if widdy is way too busy which it can get in summer.
Round the corner at millook is probs the one this guy is talking about! That is deadly breaking right breaking onto a heavy rock ledge, seen people out their but looks way too mental for myself :/
p.s sorry bout the last bit hit enter too soon :S
