 Additional Information

Watch out for the lefthand side as this is a reef called Black Rock and best left to the experienced, but it is only the last 20 yards before the cliff so that leaves plenty of nice beach.

Atmosphere

This is a good beachbreak that holds about 8ft surf. It has a reef for the more experieced who want more of a challenge. It has been breaks like these that have made my art teacher a Irish champ in the 70's

Why? - Why is it when you're free and able to go surfing its flat but as soon as the swell hits, then stupid things like work get in the way?!
