General

When it's on it rivals any point break in England but is so rare(due to it's location)that not many people have sampled it at it's best. If Eddie the Fish says it's good you know it is!

Dave Bournemouth - So I had good waves today at this spot quite a few in quite solid When this guy paddles up to me and asks how he can get out of the water, so I paddle with him & had to help him get out.I got his board in my face as he bailed like a limp wallflower whilst staining his wetsuit brown.
Please Please If you don't know or you don't think your good enough your not this place is dangerous getting in or out. Make sure you know how to get in & out before entering the water as it won't be just your board that gets dinged. I saw three learners getting smashed on the rocks it just is not a good place to learn please stay away until you are confident enough!!
