The wave breaks most often off the harbour wall and along a small reef section. Ive seen it hollow and descent only a few times. Surfed it twice it was descent. Come check it out when bikini is crowded. Best on When everywhere else is big, it might be around 3-4 foot here. Come when there little wind and clean swell.
