OK spot - this is an ok break, once in every 2 years. its only two or three rocks so its more of a take off cover up than anything else. we used to wait for this place to break all year, lots of fun when youre young but once you have surfed proper reefs you will know its nothing special. the idiots who campaigned for the dune stabilization program wrecked the banks at sandy forever. sand used to blow through to the point in winter then over to backy in summer with northerlies making good banks. no more.
