Atmosphere

very mellow vibe,you might see some oldtimers drinking beer hanging out on the road watching the surfers,but nothing to worry about,just say hi to them,if you surf davenport in the morning you might have it to yourself or with a couple of guy"s out.

Sharks, seals and whales - Update: shark spotted mid-April, chased several surfers out of the water. No surprise considering the huge numbers of seals and whales in the area.
