paddle in quickly while its flat until you get to the reef other wise you will get pulled out by the wave.
Make sure to go with a couple of surfers.
Its very empty.... Hardly and people except for some fisherman around the spot.
Not crowds at all. The waves will be for yourself.
Gets a lot of swell. Fun peaks. Not surfed that often. Barrels to yourself.
Depending on the swell size and direction, it can look like Pipeline, Indo or your crappy beach break.
