General Information

A spot from Commercial fishing legend. Un-surfed and previously un-named

Only accessible by boat or jetski. Very hard to get to when its at its legendary best ( big) as the other local beaches would be hard if not impossible to get out from. This is why only commercial fishermen have seen it.... they're already out there.

The sea floor comes up from pretty deep 30-40 fathoms on to a ledge that 3-4m below the surface. In a big swell the wave jacks up like a cross between Jaws and Teahupo with barrels that you could park a house in. Serious stuff.
