And if the surf is crap, the golf course looks a fine option :-)

naw theres not really a channel there...there a big fuck off rip that sucks you down toward the bottom right of the pic...which is where is best waves usually are...funny not many go down that way cus the beach ends and its pretty sketchy if you are uncertain of the beach. Pretty rare to see it that clean and big...

Yeah I figured it was too good to be true. And it is hard to tell from this high up, those waves are surely much bigger than they appear. I'm jealous of people who live near and surf concentrated reef breaks with channels. It almost makes it too easy.

The whole peninsula looks like a great set-up as I guess there's a few options with the wind.

Look at that easy access channel in between what look like the two main peaks. It may be deceptive from the vantage this high up but from what it looks like it might just take one easy duck dive to get out here, which is always a plus. Nice pic.
