Awesome barreling lefthander, very fast long barrels, from 2-6 feet+ (maybe bigger if you are insane), over about 150m+, with little time for cutbacks. Very shallow, so only mid and high tide. Lines up better with S-SE swells, rather than the dominant SW, and needs offshore northerly winds, or you can forget it. Trade winds blow it out from March-October unless you are up very early (eg before 9AM).
Excellent long barrels, but very fickle, trade winds (Mar-Oct) and mid-low tides wreck it.
Awesome but fickle little beast.
