Monster paddle, When it is working it is one of the great wonders of the world, You will wonder why it has not been on the cover of every surfing magazine. Weird geological structure gives monster boulder snake going out into the sea. Giant peeling left with much larger untested left and right wedges out to sea. At higher tides a right starts to break and the cross wash can create some very odd waves. A MUST VISIT on an enormous SW swell.
This place has to be seen to be believed. The reef is a part of an anticline in hard sandstone which has made this arm of rock stick out into deep water. It looks like a destroyed harbour wall. The more westerly the swell is the more it will peel down the point giving longer rides. When the swell has a bit of north in it, the quality of the wave will be reduced. The wind if any further north than westerly will blow it to bits and it will be rubbish.
