general information

A small rock bay just north of Tammarama, that houses a fickle wave breaking over a sand covered reef. The wave itself depends on the build up of a sandbar which happens less frequently than everyone would like. Big winter storms tend to scour away most of the sand leaving the spot waveless for sometime. However when the sand is there, and on a biger NE or smaller SE swell, it can produce classic hollow short left handers, not to be missed.
