This worldclass reef is is hideously shallow.. You can probably walk half of the way out!

its not that bad a paddle. theres a fat section just to the right of the cave where if you time it right you get an easy dry hair paddle.

The reason it was quiet is the waves were a solid 8ft with bigger sneaker sets, I watched it for a couple of hours over lunchtime and 6 or 8 guys were either getting dream waves or grim hold-downs. Fun to watch with a Bintang in hand though.........

Had my fair share of hold downs out there back in July 09, remember being pressed about ten foot deep lungs busting as the second one rumbled over thinking 'this is it- game over, i'll never get to tell Soutie how much our pointless quarrels really mean to me'. Needless to say i survived to tell the tale and keep on keeping on with my boring rants that annoy the smelly frenchman so much!. True story. Nightshifts over bums are clean, free at last... catch ya in seven weeks clown

Not hard to see why this place gets more rammed than my mate Dan during a certain Muslim fasting festival.
