general information

Two point breaks here, one right, one left and a peaky rivermouth beach break so there'll be plenty of options in a good south swell and north winds. The left hand point break is probably the heaviest, it's pretty shallow and quick, the right is the mellower option. The rivermouth can have some good banks too.
