 Additional Information

Good spot if you like reef breaks, When a nice swell hits, it really goes off when its 8foot face and up. Its a very very fast right break over a shallow reef. Amazing barrel ! Better be fast or you will eat reef like alot of first timers. Been there over 20 times when it was nice, only heard of a 12 foot tiger swimming in Richardsons bay once in 2007, they closed it down for all day.
