 Additional Information

This is for experienced surfers only. If you go here be careful!!! Winches is a fast, hollow wave that breaks in shallow water. It can get good but the wind usually messes it up. Just like any other break, on the right swell direction and on the right tide it can be very fun. The nice thing about this break is that there is usually no crowd. It's usually just you and your friend and possibly a few mellow bodyboarders. Everyone else is at tonggs.
