Atmosphere

This break is rare. Look for big swell coming up the channel or easterly's. It generally happens out of the summer season, so probably best in September, October, November.

Thats one less in line up - That red surf tec and its crazy long haired rider will be missed but our memorys of Hector dropping in on us will live on, in our hearts and in the dings he put in our boards. There will be someone to step in to his boots and I hear John is about the same size. Any way shame its been flat recently but never know could be waves soon.Catch you cool cats on the flip flop
