 Additional Information

Scabs is mainly a winter wave, as the winter storms create good banks that are not straight, like they are in summer

shut up - get f"·ked buddy, who cares if the waves arnt that good at scabbers, its not like the people choose the waves that come through, get down south when you can but your still a surfer on any wave, i hope you dont ever surf scabs again, you bring the whole place down to your level. ive got barreled and spat out at scabs so i know it can work, check out my photos. dyk
