- love it here... my local spot now... great bunch of lads surf here. good vibe in the water most of the time. apart from the wannabe surfing emmits that clog up the inside by the masses in the summer months. try out the high tide kamakaze wave at the slipway between the boulders...

Kayakers? - Where on those thigs called Waveskis mate, Not kayaks. I dont see why theres all this shit over a spot. And just cause where on Waveskis it doesnt mean we have no right to the waves mate. I will always pull out if a surfer or anything else is inside of me and has the right to that wave.
