The wave needs bigger swell then the left to work good.
there is a small tidal pond in the bay which makes a nice entry and exit point, most people who know the wave better will get in over a rocky ridge right of it which reaches a bit more into the bay. i case you do not wear booties try not to make ground contact: lots of urchins.
you need to take care wioth the current when you paddle out, the current pushes you into a small bay to your left. do not try to land there. foul seaweed piles up meter high and will give you a frustrating tour in stinky mud. point your board in direction of the wave and try to stay in the middle of the bay on your way out, when you go in let yourself be pushed in by the whitewater on the east side of the bay.
the wave is very sensitive to wind and n or nw´erly wind will cause it to get mushy and not rideable.
