On a good day works as a nice point break as the sets come around Point Addis. If the swell is up at Bells then it's generally up at Windows. Fair rip most days that takes you down the beach, best bet is to catch it all the way in and then walk back around.
When the weather is warm then parking becomes an issue as the car park is tiny and street parking isn't good either. Lots of surf schools use this beach, lots of people walk their dogs and lots of log jockeys and paddle peanuts populate the line-up when the sun is out. Like most Vicco spots it works better in the colder months. If it's not on at Addis or Windows then there's generally something rideable down the beach at Mangoes or around the corner at Southside.
Great spot for an unpopulated line-up most days if you don't wanna battle the crowds at Torquay or drive further down the GOR
