 Additional Information

When the banks are good this wave can be epic. There are normally 3 peaks. One in the middle, one to the left off Constantine Point and one on the right near the rocks. The middle peak is normally best at mid tide. Does get rippy if the wind is too strong.

At high tide there is no beach.

When the swell is right The Slab is the place to be. This is a hollow, sucky right hand reef at low tide off the cliffs to the North. If it is breaking it is easy to spot. When it gets good, it gets mega crowded with talented locals.

Atmosphere

The vibe in the water is usually friendly. Can get a bit tense in the summer when it gets very crowded as it picks up a lot of swell.

General

I have had some really good surfs here and some terrible surfs. It is either very good or not worth getting wet for. The trouble is, it is hard to know what it will be like before you go in sometimes.

How waves break - A wave breaks on the first reef it hits that's shallow enough to make it break - if it hits a very shallow reef it doesn't mean the wave will be smaller, and it'll probably actually be slightly bigger. The formula that waves break where the depth is roughly the same as the wave height only tends to work for beach breaks with gentle inclines.

Mr Big Bollocks - Maybe you need to learn a bit about how waves work,in general as waves get bigger they need more depth to break properly, as in Pipeline when it gets big breaks on the 2nd or 3rd reef out.
If the water you surf in is only 2 ft deep, it is probably likely that the height of the waves you surf is pretty similar.
