good - i surfed there in the new year 2005 (stand up) and it was a laugh. very heavy, close outs and 2 of my friends snapped their boards there in a few hours. sucky and fun at double overhead, but much bigger and is like wiamea shorey!! will be going back there this new year for sure!!!!

Why it pounds. - Free dove here last Nov (04) when we lost the prop on our boat. We were only 200 yards off the beach yet the propeller was located about 50 feet beneath us. Had to swim down and pick it off the bottom along with the nut that held it on. Pretty interesting. Its no wonder this place breaks like it does. Deep water energy slamming into shallow sand bars. I'll go back.
