 Additional Information

It isn't ridden very much, and only works at about 4-6 ', in certain conditions. A fairly short ride, it can be fun, as long as the waves are not closing out. This is because the break is sandwiched between a series of reefs. When it's too big, the waves break further out and it's not viable.
