the crowds here are hideous...and even worse in summer when the swimming zone is put right in the middle and a muscly lifeguard swims about screaming if your wave breaks into the swimming zone, no matter how far out you are. However it breaks amazing when its on!

We didn't surf there, we had our own secret spot miles away, but still this is an amazing view!

If that kind of crowd is out for that beach break, then I'll stay no to the surf trip.

Opal helps make my point, above. And I'm sure the break is sick, just not at the particular moment captured... sorry I'm just used to freezing point breaks with a couple other people out, so crowds tend to ruin a good session here.

If you knew how good the break was you may change your mind!
