Week crowdFew surfers
- Rips / undertow
Paddle out on the reef. The rip will take you off the reef into the channel.From there you just paddle out to the back.
But be careful surfing there because the reef is real sharp and many injuries have happened their like my dads mate who puntured a lung and broke his ribs. The reef is shallow so dont get caught on the inside.

wannasurf stole my photo - I took this photo in 2006, before i paddled out and surfed that day. I think the image was stolen from my now, deleted, MySpace page and watermarked with wannasurf.com... good job, nice way to increase the crowds...
