Very gnarly reef probably the most hollow in the south west, Gets powerful and fast but must be clean, Be very careful where you fall off as this is a very shallow sharp reef. Less than knee deep in places. Can be spectacular when big, The line up stays in the same place, It just sucks harder and thicker. Peaks shift around a bit and you do not want to be caught inside.

Fickle but fun - I reckon the locals get some sick days here. One Winter we fluked a whole day on neap tides where two peaks sat on the reef perfectly. I drove over countless times hoping for a similar setup but it never happened. Haven't been here in a few years but hope the small local crew are still loving it. Great memories.
