 Additional Information

Low tide is very fast and hollow. Close outs are common but when the waves are over 4ft there are easy barrels. The rights are always better than the lefts.

As the tide pushes the waves increase (sometimes double the size). The wave becomes more makeable and less hollow, though still fast.

High tide can be OK, but on big tides suffers the wave gets a bit wobbly from back wash.

On a massive swell and a Spring low tide there is a point break on the left hand side.

Atmosphere

Low tide is usually least crowded as many people can't make the drop. Mid tide is crowded and competitive.

General

Good, hollow, short waves and a short paddle. The paddle is easy even when it is big, though taking the drop may be more difficult.

Mission of a surf - Slack session - missioned it around to find somewhere working well but settled for Harlyn in the end - not bad maybe overhead on sets but not a hell of a lot of face on most of the swell coming through, needed to get in the water though..

fooking hate closeouts - Me and a mate recently bodyboarded here, ffs my brain got scrambled from getting closedout so many times. Its fun but i cant see why surfers bother cos the drop is pretty lary, and it rarely peels.
