Atmosphere

This wave is incredible(??). With the hollowest and suckiest barrel surfed around the area(nope, not even close), which is the best area in Australia(seriously?), this wave can not be missed. Along with Elevators(Serious surfers will like this one, the take off is why it used to be called elevators in the1960's and 70's, now it's just boneys) and Easter(Pros only, it only starts breaking at 10 ft plus, and very rarely is decent below 15 or 20 ft) this section of coast cannot be missed.

How's the curve? - How's the curve on this wave. You can't really see it from the pics but when you're riding it, it's got an insane little horseshoe type bend. Makes it very unique :)
