 Additional Information

Not very hollow. Middle reef, shit pipe and the point best suited to longboarders. Langland dose not work at high tide it just dumps unless there is a big swell. High tide works better when there is a strong on shore wind because it dose not dump as much.

Beginners should stick to the middle of the bay (beach break). Best suited to longboarders.
.
More experienced can try right hand point (west end)
East end also has reef break (experience needed): this is <b>Crab Island</b> and works only at low tide.It's quite shallow and sucky.
