 Additional Information

Gets very hollow and wedgey because swell bounces off the rocky cliffs on both sides of the cove. Best peak is closest to the arcade.(You'll see it when you get there.) Another good peak is just a little bit further down the beach, not as hollow but offers fun rides.

Atmosphere

Needs a big swell to break but when it does its definetly a regional classic. It does not get very crowded either.
