Atmosphere

Left works best here as right is short and ends right in front of shallow rocks. Need to takeoff early behind the rocks otherwise and drop in before the bowl. Basically one turn and a cutback and its all over but nice and fast. If you miss the drop you'll get washed out into the channel but usually after a bit of a beating. Heavy wave on a big swell. Broken boards not uncommon.
