Works only if swell is too big for North Shore +5m. Good for Longbording since it is not hollow, but possible for shortboards too. Paddle out is easy, you don´t have to duckdive.
If it´s good, everybody is there because it is big easy wave. Wanna surf big ones no problem easy to start and a long ride for some 200-300m is possilbe. Never heared of anybody hurting himself.
If it works and no wind perfect. Had some epic day there this year.

this place can kick you ass - when it gets really big,the outside gets heavy,hollow and fast,serious wipeouts & holddowns.
Great fun seeing the wannabees getting worked !
Love it !

- This is a fun wave. If a huge swell hits-head here (with everybody else) easy peeling slow wave.Lots of fun and games sharing waves.An easy introduction to surfing bigger waves.

Hot Sh!t - Just come back from a great surf holiday in Fuerte. Had a few good days at Cotillo & Majanicho. The surf grew to epic proportions, and Rocky Point was the place to be (judging by the distinct absence of surfers on the North Track). Surfed the outside at 8ft+ in the morning, and surfed the inside at 4-6ft in the afternoon. Bit crowded, but there were no hassles and barely any drop-ins. Stayed like it for the next dew days, then a nice glassy sesh at Cotillo before flying home. Awesome
