There are to peaks dont go to deep unless you are totally confident cause you are guarenteed to go over the falls and get hurt. Its a fast hollow wave so enjoy the sick pits and take photo's cause it goes off.
Needs a big NW swell and incoming tide, to ease the rip. Now has lots of spongers from inland, they camp out here and have lots of man parties !
