Atmosphere

The locals aren't violent but they all seem to know eachother and one will surely be on every wave (generally same crowd as windansea) show respect and locals will start to tell you which way their going so you can have a taste. show no respect and they will go out of their way to ruin your ride.

Fast E - bird rock - this was heavy rocky access for little reward, nasty locals, long paddle, plenty of submerged rocks which locals happily won't show you, dings every time, much better one or town reefs north or south

PB Point or South Birdrock? - Well yesterday lowtide i tried out this spot in between PB Point and South Birdrock. The beach is nothing but gravel, and you have to walk down a steep hill to get there. Whats that place called? It had a nice left, long ride but it was first time over the reefs. That is some scary s**t. It was just my two buddies and i, awesome wave but jeez that reef and those rocks. Very spooky, note to self,*dislike when paddling and then your hand hits reef*.
