This spot is reansable easy to find and when south east blows and swell is in. It can be a heavy spot.Thier are two main areas where is the surf is good. One spot on the left at the reef, when low tide its works producing a big left and barrels occucational. Second spot is on far right and is left and right wave. Caution sharks at times and a heavy sand bar that sucks you in, and lastly a heavy rip tide that takes far out without returning.
This spot is unpredictable and just when you think its worth going thier you get a lake. but when the condition are right this is a spot something you dont wanna miss.
classic when on!

Fickle - I agree with previous post. I grew up in this area and probably had it good/epic 3 or 4 times in like 10 years. Only worth checking it if there is at least a small wave breaking at Paranoia with a SE.

- I'm not sure how you girls rate these spots - how the hell does pringle scoop 4 stars. I've seen it good twice in 20 years, for the rest its 1ft and closing out.

dont get blown to sea - surfed this spot a lot when i was learning. is great when the south easter is pumping and betties is blown out. if the wind is really blowing you really get blown offshore, sometimes the wind is blowing so hard u cant sit on your board cos u act like a sail. if u go to far the paddle to get back to the beach can be a huge mission.
