 Additional Information

It doesnt tend to be a fast wave so is increasingly popular with longboarders. If you cockup your takeoff you're likely to get mashed on the rocks! As you look at the beach, surf on the right due to there is an under-tow. Also park in the square as it is free parking. I would wear a protected helmet when you go in the sea as ith keeps you warm and protects you.

Atmosphere

This spot is a good one as it is close to good surfing beaches such as Rest Bay and Coney Beach. The town centre is buzzing with all kinds of people looking around the shops. also this sight attracts loads of surfing photographers with the perfect clean wave from right ot left. Also this spot is sheltered from the wind so it is quite warm in the summer.Usually pretty friendy - being a point break the locals may get a bit annoyed if you hog the wave but as long as everybody waits their turn its cool.

SOMEBODY THINKS THEY'RE HARD!!!!!! - Cap'n Kernow you think your hard, but your not. Us groms could and would take you down if we knew who u were. you say it s 4 foot which is a matter of opinion i personally wouldnt say it was much bigger but 4ft is quite big in surfing terms - overhead but its even better when you think its breaking over aboput a foot of water onto reef. GO HOOME KOOK

Kooks go home! - Me and the sheep pack that live in the volcom house over looking the break are well hard. Any one that does not have board and wetsuit colour co-ordination is likely to have it! (cause you look like kooks).If you don't come from round here do not surf here! Especialy English people who stole our country off us!
