 Additional Information

The reef at east cliff has rarely been surfed, this is because it is some way of shore and close to the harbour entrance, requires a large swell to work well, can work on smaller swells if low spring tide.

the vibes - hi guys. I'm moving to up to the south east soon. I'm leaving my beloved south west paradise and was wondering what the vibe is like. This looks like a pretty sweet wave. Locals cool and all that. Hoping to leave the screw face and stink eye back in newquay!
