 Additional Information

The spot is in fact a series of sand bars which shift around a lot. In general a regular peak is found behind the boat itself. Almost all the waves are lefts, unless the swell is oriented west, in which case some rights form. The waves pick up fast on the sand bar, and provide some of the more powerful and technical waves in the region, ocassionally tubing.

Atmosphere

The water is usually very murky, and you are out 150m from the beach, behind the break.... on the rare occasion when fins have popped out of the water near us it has seemed a very very long paddle back to the beach. Marine life is usually of the friendly variety, but keep your eyes open.

General

When its good its great, and when its bad its not worth getting wet for. Last piece if advice - get there really early, as it is really badly affected by on-shore thermal winds.
