find cables, you mite see it breaking about 200 metres offshore. if its breaking then head down to the beach and look about ten metres in front of you. there is a little reef here thats close to the shore, directly in line with cables. This is tincans. if cables is breaking then you just better hope that some sets will go past it and come in to tincans.. or if its not breaking but still a good swell then you get plenty of waves.
well theres all these little rocks sticking up off the shore, and the reef can get pretty shallow but its just like a normal break. Also pretty close to shore so its safe.
good on its day, ive seen it break at about two foot when everywhere is literally flat. on its day it pumps. The other day i saw it, cables was only breaking a tiny bit and the waves were pushing all the way into tincans. Big heavy and hollow closeouts. Better to go to tincans than trek out to cables and get eaten by a shark i reckon.
