Week-end crowdFew surfers
to get down to the water you have to follow the track to the east a little and you'll find a litte rock you can scale down to a grass part where you can leave your shit there. from here just follow the worn track down to the water.
one of the few fun lefts in the area
about 1 km down the coast you'll find a much hollower left with no way of getting down. still iteresting to watch
