The take off is hollow and after it's a cool wave good for big cut backs. Come here when other spots are closing out.

check it on a huge day - I've been there in semptember this year and it was reallyhuge... up to 3m waves and higher!

experienced surfers?!?! - I wouldn't say that's an experienced surfers spot. Instead, it's good for beginners because waves aren't hollow, neither fast.

I love this wave... - That's right...Despite it's mellowness,the take off zone can be treacherous when it's firing.I broke a board when air-dropping a nasty set wave a few years back...I remember paddling for ages with the pieces of foam,then grabbing another board and returning for a few more... ;-)
