Info

The horseshoe shaped bay produces waves from low through to high providing rights off a rock at the east end of the beach - fast and sucky waves with a ledgy take off, to a peak in the middle producing lefts and rights which are hollow and fast.

Dangers:

Crowds, hollow waves breaking into shallow water, rocks, rips at high tide.

Tides:

Surfable at all tides.

Wind:

S/SW offshore.
