It sucks for tourists - Sandies is full of groms who won't hesitate to drop in on travelling surfers. Also don't try to have them on about drop ins/snaking because theyll just get you even more. I spent about a month there during the summer and the waves were occasionally good but I never seemed to get any sets because of all the little s#!t$ stealing them.
If u want a few waves go somewhere like oceans where u will get way more swell, good banks and mellower locals.

Go somewhere else! - Yeh, I agree. Travelling surfers should go up north to some other beach, nothing to see here folks , nothing to see here...

Stay Away - this was my local for over 20 yrs. It didn't get the name "scungies" for nothing
