Park respectfully right in front of the spot. Nice clean lefts peel from the reef or from the harbour wall on real big days. Good beachie for beginners as well.
Sandside will be working when the more well known spots are being blown out, bit of a fight to hold the take off spot due to rips but all in all a very good wave. Nice and sheltered.

so.. - ..what happens if you surf here. do you get an extra arm and come out with a green glow around you?..and is it just this spot? or does it affect other spots too.. and like a kjadilion more questions, trying to figure out why somebody crowned this spot a good place to surf..when the only picture posted is a sign with a radioactive warning. Or is it just to keep people away.. But then come questions as ; if g-land was radioactive , would you surf it.? . yeah , i'm just a curious little rino.
