the spot is a fast heavy wave which needs some attention to what the wave is actually doing, as the wave has a tendancy to suck dry, the wave can brake both left and right but the lefts are the best as they break across the reef and into the chanel, as the rights are very short and break onto the rocks...
it is hard to judge just how big i can be from the car park, due to overlooking the spot
so if it looks small , take a chance because it could be worth while, when the tide drops
right out the wave starts to rear up and can jack, to virticle drop, it will bowl and can suck dry,
good fun very shallow, and hollow...
this spot can be full of attitude locals who
think they own the place, with the likes of oldee
longboarders, short boarders, and plymouth based
spungers. so don't expect an easy ride, dropins and verble
can been expected, from hard core locals due beeing
a secret spot until recient years...
very good fun, can be an intence or easy surf, big bazzers
to be had on the right day, and you might find a nice surprise!...
