dont surf this spot alone.it is quite dangerous.it is quite a steep wave so if it is barrelin youll hasve to turn in quick or ull get anyllated.there are a few parking space available but this place usually isnt busy.
this is a nice wave and you can get some tube time cos its bloody hollow.it can be quit sucky.there arent usually many if ne out in the water.
