Suck Up is a pretty fun wave to surf - especially in a big NE swell. On low tide it can get hollow and very sucky. In summer it is absoloutly packed with about 20 -30 people in the line up.Dont bother on those days - try Banzi or Lefts further down the beach. Also there is a group of local boadyboarders that think they own the bloody place. They act like the are pros or something - snaking everone. If you do come across these kids just ignore them - unless they drop-in or tell you to go home - then its on! Other than that it is a fun wave.
The atmosphere is pretty good except when its packed or the local try hard suck up crew are out.
If you want respect - don't dog anything.
Pretty Fun - espically early morning, when the swell is up, its low tide and the water is like black glass.
