Visitor Reviews of Yellow sands Point
“Yellow Sands Point is a right point break holding up to 8ft+. If you make the drop relax and wait for the wave to pitch and barrel. Don't be a chop, locals have been known slash tyres, but if you wait your turn and don't ass your waves you will gain respect and more waves. Like they say, if you get it good you are in for a huge blessing.”
