Week-end crowdFew surfers
- Rips / undertow
There is a deep reef about 100 m off the beach that
makes a left and right peak. Sometimes a good steep bowl on the left, nice and fast, but short. Pull out before the shorebreak unless you're a bodyboarder.
Would be a great place to do an artificial reef, extend the reef and you could have bullies in the mirror. A sick left barrel just over the channel, and half the crowds
Reef is too deep to break on smaller swells, or higher tides.

Not great - Not really a good surf spot, beach break more suited to body surfing. Nice if you want to end in a wheelchair, better surfing at First Ave on a good day or down to Middleton.
