This spot is really only active after a storm, the pictures i have attached are the day after a very windy 2 days of rain. Hence it was somewhat polluted and the waves are the largest probably all year.
I think this spot would go off if only the fetch was bigger (not really an option is it :).
Wind swells are the only thing that break here, and they last only a day or so, no ground swells.
