needs a VERY large swell to start breaking. Once word gets out that waves are grinding down the point the crouds swarm.
HEAVY LOCALS. When it breaks the locals have it covered. Do not mess with the locals or your live may be in danger.
There's two other point breaks around here called Crumpets and Rifle Range. The locals are not immune to snipers on the cliffs, nobody owns the ocean
long, long, long ,long, long, long, wave with hollow sections and steep walls. Possibly the longest wave in Vico. A long paddle back on a big day; easier to paddle in to beach and walk back. Very quick section about half way on a big day but if you make it you'll have one of the longest waves of your life.

dredging - I am writing to say that this great wave will become a myth in the next year or so, the port has just landed a 5 year contract to dredge the sand from the area to try and rebuild beaches elsewhere...
